MA Sculpture, 2017
I work across moving image and performance to explore a dynamic between my body and the world. I am interested in how slapstick performance could suggest a relationship that disrupts and collapses a dominant position of the human.
In my final degree show, I am considering how a feminist perspective could suggest new relations between humanity and nature. I have been making short videos which suggest a dynamic between body and world which is open, porous and reciprocal.
I want my work to resonate both emotionally and politically. Many of my videos play with absurdist logic, but where the emphasis is on the body, rather than on objectivity. I am also interested in the role technology plays to draw us in, or further detach, humanity from the material world.
