My work is situated between writing, performance, installation, sound and exhibition making. Central to my practice is the exploration of  'constant revision’ – a state of being in which structures or ideas are continuously subverted, dissolved or questioned.

 

I have a layered approach to making: archival or historical research is placed alongside embodied and intuitive forms of learning and production, such as mark making and automatic writing. My process is innately collaborative, often working in collaboration with practioners from other fields in the process or outcome of works.
