Artist Statement

I am a UK based artist, curator and educator. 

My art practice explores the conceptual frameworks we invent to give our lives a sense of order and what happens when these slip.

I use sculpture, site specific installations and performance to investigate the body.  I am concerned with the relationship between empathy and consumable commodity in both animals and humans.  And, I explore the ways in which we can simultaneously understand the body as both subject and object.
