My work often explores the transformation of the body in space and changes of spatial qualities over time. I’m interested in forms of failure and disruption within familiar structures and habits. Framed in a laboratory context of work making with a strong visual approach, I prefer to allow an issue to emerge rather than pre-empting it.
Through a snowballing effect of images, I try to subvert subject and object relationship to question our fundamental existence.
