My work is a combination of sculpture and performance. It deals with the visceral; not only in its visual echoes of the internal organs and soft structures of the body, but in the raw emotion and instinctive nature of its construction.
I have a deep personal connection to the work, large-scale pieces which are the product of prolonged periods of focused, repetitive work; stitching, fusing, taking apart and bringing together. In wearing the work I examine its relationship to gravity, space and perception – performance is central to my research. In my video work I explore the meaning and narrative of the work through a combination of performance and sound.
In my display I use mirrors, windows, and recognizable waste items (drinks bottles, fast fashion and packaging), a language which invites the viewer to see themselves reflected.
I feel this work is part of a broader conversation around sensation, emotion, representation and (in)visibility which is current and necessary.
