Alya Hatta

Alya Hatta
Drawing on personal experiences and memories, the work Alya Hatta makes explores her Southeast Asian identity, and portrays the colourful intimacies of the diasporic human condition. Alya takes inspiration from the communities of both her South-London and Kuala Lumpur residences as well as Southeast Asian mythology to create alternate realities in an attempt to find new spaces in which she can call home.

Community and ecology are key influences in her work. The backdrop of these new worlds are framed by creating a wilderness that bridges ecologies from Southeast Asia and Europe, with aims of rooting Alya deeper and more securely in each location.
