Situated between writing, performance, video and exhibition making, my practice draws on the notion of ‘constant revision’ — states of being in which structures or ideas can be subverted, dissolved or questioned.

 

Often focusing on investigating marginalized Herstories and practices, my work reflects upon events, approaches and ideas that refuse to be pinned down or categorized. Through a process of both uncovering and layering influences, histories and conversations, my work attempts to create a space for genealogies of Feminist practice that are allusive, messy and entangled in contemporary concerns.

 

I have an MFA from the Dutch Art Institute -  School for Art Praxis, was Associate Curator at Arnolfini 2015-16 and Associate Artist to Tate St.Ives in 2015.
