I am interested in the tragi-comic, and the way it is possible to present the audience with a proposition that can be viewed as light-hearted, or something more sinister, in order to prompt questions of spectatorship. My works often utilise an exaggerated register, influenced by the Theatre of the Absurd and slapstick comedy, to emphasise the staged nature of these performative incidents. Recently, I have also begun to draw on my memories of childhood for inspiration in creating situations that playfully highlight the difficulty in returning to the gestures of imagined youthful exploration and unbridled creativity.
