MA work

Through my work, I explore the themes surrounding the gaze, and the dichotomy of the private and public through the use of the body, to explore the Auto/Biographical. The body becomes a means for investigating displacement, social identity and its manifestation through everyday performance.

I work in different media (photography, video and installation) allowing the idea to dictate the form of the art project; to create a body of work that, although diverse in its visual outcomes, forms a coherent whole in its communicative aim.
