Biography

My practice is concerned with the human condition and has links to existentialism. My work deals with my fragile, vulnerable presence and issues of my own mortality. I live in the fear that I won't be remembered. I am concerned with the fear of death and how it shapes and pervades our life. The awareness of our impending mortality is something which I attempt to deal with. The personal anxiety from which my work stems has been caused by the death of my father when I was very young. In my work I have obsessively documented my own presence, I have been fixated with my own subjectivity and I have explored mediums such as CCTV and forensics. My work is a product of inner necessity, fabricating evidence as proof of my existence.
