I’m an artist from Brighton, based in Edinburgh, working collaboratively across performance, audio, video, installation, photography and drawing. I conduct continual embodied fieldwork and tune in to the constant becoming of places and ecologies, creating gestural works of art.

 

My artworks have ranged from performance scores mapping the movements of birds to a multi-channel sound installation communicating with a dying starfish travelling through space, to a short comedic film about the violence of mowing the lawn. I’m interested in leaning into and finding hope in, the darkness of the ecological crisis and the inseparable links between nature and culture. My work is intimate, and I open myself up to be vulnerable with the rest of nature through radical interventions.

 

At the core of my studio practice, is a thirst for peer learning through facilitating artist-led research groups for collaborators and peers which feed a growing need for safe and free spaces for artists to collectively learn, support each other and offer critique.

From 2018-2019 I set up and co-facilitated a research group Art is Action (Do It Together) at Somerset House Studios, a social practice research group led by UK based artists and producers.

As a curator, producer and researcher, I've led projects and supported artists for over 10 years across visual, live, performance art, and social art practice with artists and organisations. 

Recent projects have led me to work with farmers & growers, activist groups, universities, DJs and artists as well as art spaces and institutions, including IUCN World Conservation Conference (Marseille) 2 Degrees Festival (London), Live Art Development Agency (London), Chapter Arts Centre (Cardiff), Scottish Sculpture Workshop (Aberdeen), Somerset House Studios (London), CCA Coventry Artsadmin (London) and Unlimited (London).
