Through sound and sculpture, I explore the fragility and resilience of our lives. How we navigate day to day relationships and interact with the physical and natural world. Underpinning my practice is a desire to find ways that the institutions and systems which govern our lives can build on the affirmative actions of individuals.
I often transform assemblages of found objects, including phrases, sounds and the human voice into art objects. Audiences frequently take part, at some point in my practice, creating collective encounters that focus on memories or the overlooked. My work seeks to investigate what nourishes us, as well as the behaviours that holds us back. As Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick wrote in her essay Paranoid Reading “Art can be a route to clarity and a force for resistance and repair, providing new registers and languages in which to think.”
I recently completed a commission for Walworth Community Garden Network as part of the Chelsea Fringe (2019) and had a solo show Walworth Sound Walk in the Balcony Project Space (2020). I have participated in group shows at Islington Arts Factory (2020), RAF Hendon (2020), Crypt Gallery, St John’s, Bethnal Green, February (2019) and the Ruskin Gallery, Camden (2018).
