My practice involves the arrangement and manipulation of objects in order to create sculptural compositions that explore the relationship between body, object and space. My work is site-responsive, drawing attention to the formal qualities of the objects and how these are set up in dialogue with the architectural, social or historical features of the space. It is through this dialogue that I aim to bring about a moment of alignment where the work might, temporarily, come to belong to the site itself.
My research, writing and art practice is concerned with the body as a site of understanding the world. I am interested in the possibility for encounters with artwork to act as a meeting point for rational forms of knowledge and instinctive and intuitive thought. My work explores how sensory perception might be expressed in visual form, gesturing towards the possibility for the work to become a substitute for the body and vice versa. I investigate the way in which we hold personal and social histories in our bodies and how meaning is constructed in the performative moment of an audience’s encounter with a work in a particular space at a particular moment in time.
