ART IS A CONVERSATION
YET TO BE BORN
WE ARE MERELY
My practice covers a range of creative activities across the field of performance but also photography, visual arts, sculpture, writing and broadcast. I work with media ranging from everyday objects to more sophisticated lighting and performance technologies, social media and in some cases, using the audience themselves to drive the creative process.
Each of these creative fields has a particular function in my practice as a general means of self-expression, a way to explore or interrogate my relationship with the society and cultures which surround me.
I am very politically driven, a common factor across my work is the engagement with the inherent tensions between social and economic forces, environmental/ industrial decay, decolonisation, relationships between male, female and other genders – all of which are a source of great frustration to me – that is the prevalence of inequity and injustice, corruption and violence in various systemic and manifest forms around the globe.
In short, I see my work as a dedication to addressing these inequities, a way to leverage my position of privilege into asking people to consider their role in the broad social picture, and particularly what actions they are taking to tip the balance on either side of the scale. My work wants to speak to the future generations by resonating with the living.
I am driven by the creative impulse.
I am always striving to push the possibilities of what it means to be an artist, a performer, what it means to make theatre, video or any other form of creative output.
As such a good deal of my work operates outside of commercial influence, it makes no money, is royalty free, it exists only as a means to experiment and expand the limits of form.
