Artist Personal Statement

My work draws on a wide variety of traditions and methods; it is participatory, collaborative and theatrical. I collaborate with artists, curators and diverse communities to develop often site-specific interventions and artworks. These include interactive installations, live events, games, audio visual works, playful walks and artists’ books amongst others. My work is, in the broadest sense, political. I use play as a productively provocative space in which the participant is challenged to confront their accepted understandings. Using optics, scale and perspective in specific processes and settings, participants respond to contemporary dilemmas of identity both as actors with free will and actors in an historical context.

I ask how and what do we see, what do we remember and what do we forget? I seek to illuminate how visual evidence is framed and how this affects our ability to ‘see’ and hence our understanding of traumatic intractable and deeply divisive conflicts. My work has been exhibited internationally and is held in private and public collections.

About The Cambridge Show

‘The Cambridge Show’ brings together work by twenty-two artists who live or work in and around Cambridge. Showcasing a cross-section of the artistic community operating in the local area, from photography to performance, the exhibition will explore these artists’ diverse practices, and some of the themes and issues that they are engaging with right now.
