dwelling on a sanctuary is an underwater sensorial experience grounded in speculation about underwater worlds.  It is informed by research into Drexciya, the Zimbabwean water spirit (Njuzu) and traditional healer (N’anga).  The Njuzu are said to pull their subjects underwater, returning them to dry land equipped with the healing powers of a N’anga.  The work places the viewer into this world to explore its objects and writings and consider methods towards healing through the body.
