Working and living in London.

I like to question / poke at habits and social norms.

 

My work aims to interrogate the absurdity of social habits and conformities, and question intellectual and cultural hierarchies. I am interested in the power dynamics between subjects and objects. I enjoy the use of humour as a method of confrontation, and working in an open ended, and experimental way, having the work decide the next stage of research is. I dislike the idea of discrete art categories, for example jewellery and performance being strictly separated, and am working across varied art mediums.
