    Specialism

    performance

  • In my practice I open myself out through a journey of becoming. Rather than seeking the stability of identity, I need to discover my sense of agency: what moves me and through what do I move. If I lean towards my own body it is because it has become so marked by the multiplicity of limits we might call social reality. Not only is the journey of becoming a heightened relationship to transience itself but also it finds material condition within the in-between state of solid to liquid. Rather than a case of being either-or as an absolute opposition, I keep alive the possibility of a state of becoming whereby difference might be in an open state of play. I hope my work is the tiny moment of freedom that might erupt like the strike of a match within the energetics of my own becoming.
