BIOGRAPHY

 

My practice explores art as a species of philosophical agency, invested first and foremost in the task of thinking and thinking’s relationship to the body and matter at large. I have chosen to operate via HRH.the (a ‘conceptual persona’, an intellectual and fantastical strategy by which I navigate my complex relationship to the world). Art is not viewed straight forwardly as a tool of communication, more as a complex kingdom that is continually attempting to establish itself through human thought and action. My curiosity here is how such thinking forms new types of subjects, approaches to art making and forms for living. My work is necessarily wide ranging - incorporating live art, drawing, sculpture, writing, performance for camera and art pedagogy. I have specific research interests in the relationship between art and philosophy, in the suffragette as a militant artist (collaborating under the umbrella of the Emily Davison Lodge with Olivia Plender), and in David Bohm’s Dialogue (I trained with the charity Prison Dialogue and have facilitated groups in a variety of contexts, in particular at art venues and within the art school setting). Public showings of my work include former Randolph Street Gallery Chicago, LIVE Biennale Vancouver, Women’s Library Gallery London, Tate Britain (Emily Davison Lodge) Yorkshire Sculpture Park and most recently Tanzquartier, Vienna.
