STATEMENT

my work centers on imposition and the tension it produces, recurrently employing performative strategies to intervene on the shifting contest around rights and freedoms epitomised by territorial struggles. performative actions are used to play with space and place, often combined with large-scale textile installations. taking momentum from matters arising within the local, i look outward to draw on the commonality of universal human relations.

by drawing on the influence of multiple artistic traditions, i also move beyond tactile forms to employ the use of text and speech as intervention, in works such as boko, to interrogate penal codes enshrined in divine law, often sealed off from scrutiny.

since much of my process sets out to question and reconsider inherited ideas, my approach remains expansive and multi-disciplinary, including photography, film and print.
