I am trained as film-maker, with a background

as a cultural historian. I am particularly

interested in work that looks at ideas

surrounding place, locality, transcultural

experience, and which interrogates received

notions of culture and social constructs. |
Since 2002 I have been involved in critical

writing about a variety of art related subjects. |


I produce the critical website SiteSpecificArt.org.uk |


In 2011 Nazir Tanbouli and I set up Studio75, a radical

artist-run centre in Dalston, East London.and organised the

massive site-specific project The King's Land. |


The documentary film TAKING OVER THE KING'S LAND,

about the project, is out now. http://www.kingslandmural.co.uk |


I am currently writing a book about the relationship of cinema and visual art.
