Circuit Training, (exercises in self-doubt)
The body as material and body as apparatus. 'Circuit Training' is a live choreographic work, which focuses on fragmented (parts of the body) via delineated exercise-style segments:
The body; (knee joints, elbow levers, hip-bones)
— fractious fragments
The circuit; (winding, weaving, coiling)
— suturing them back together
In conversation with 'To be confirmed: exercises in self-doubt' — a collection of three essays, ('Morphology of the Hit', 'Circuit Training' & 'Body Language') written by the artist and published on the occasion of The Royal College of Art Degree Show, 2018.

Notes on choreography:
Signalling back to my history in dance, I use the term ‘choreography’ quite specifically when framing my work. Staging and tableau are commonly used terms in relation to the photographic, (staging borrowed from theatre and tableau predominantly from painting) — but I use the term 'choreographic' as a means of bringing us back to the body and the performativity of the photographic gesture.
Image making as dance — dancing for around the image.
a gestural image; — to be distilled
