MA work

What are you doing to me?
When you don't believe a word I say
We can't go on together

My practice is largely framed around the notion of institution, both actual and metaphorical, and the way we exist within such parameters. For this work I collaborated with Samantha Hotston videoing her performance of Suspicious Minds.
