I am interested in exploring the connection between the body and the environment, and the role of this relationship in personal and collective transformation. Working across the disciplines of installation, performance, film and painting my recent work focuses on the embodiment of a landscape and the blurred lines between internal and external realities, examining how we internalise our environment and how landscape shapes our imagination and our understanding of reality. My work moves between disciplines. The paintings and drawings are idea generators assisting in the visualization of a concept or experience. Once made they often form the starting point for three dimensional work and initiate further questions for research. Through the installations I have developed my interest in the body and it’s connection to the surrounding space and this has recently led to several performance works greatly influenced by the principles of Butoh dance. In The Pioneer (2013) and Untitled performance (2013) I sew myself into sculpted landscapes, transforming both my surroundings and my movement. Body and landscape become one. In (Video piece 2013) the dreamlike feel of the film is one of internalisation, where the difference between inner and outer disappears, dissolving the idea of a concrete reality. A key element to the film is the sound which acts both as an initiator and as an embodier. I am particularly excited about this aspect of sound and am keen to explore it further in future projects. read full statement
