artist Statement
There exists a pronounced dialogue within my work with social, political and cultural contexts, placing particular focus on moments of social disruption and transformation.
Working in moving image my work addresses the impossibility of coherently identifying the realities of contemporary Western political and social life and considers the existence of personal contribution within political discourse. Through a combination of narrative, attention to site, documentary and staged actions, these vignettes critique the political framework and explore the tensions that exist between society and the political.
