MA work

MA work

I am interested in the way collections and archives are built and their subsequent contents displayed, highlighting inaccuracies with history and its representation.

Researching, writing and collecting are an integral part of my process. I present drawing, collage and objects within adopted systems and formats of the material sciences. By re-making and altering found images and objects, I play with the balance between fact and fiction.

My recent work is set within the field of archaeology. I am interested in the perception of excavation as an uncovering of the truth. I aim to create a landscape where relations of ownership are questioned.
