In a series of nine large photographs embedded into a wave-like jute and wood structure on Ilgwang Beach, Roaja uses his surrounding natural material-- sand, grass, roots, bark, twigs, leaves, flowers, moss, and seaweed-- to meld his body into his environments. Photographed in and around the Bay of Bengal, this photo-series reminds us of the liquid connections between Ilgwang Beach and the Indian Ocean. This bay is also near Cox’s Bazar, now the largest global refugee settlement (Kutupalong) populated by survivors of the Rohingya ethnocide. Hailing from one of the 11 indigenous tribes in the Chittagong Hill Tracts in Bangladesh, Roaja parses the multiple politics of his ecologies. <Liquid Roots> is a vital reminder of the violence enacted on persecuted people and non-human nature.
