Statement

My work negotiates the representation and manipulation of memory and identity. Video and photography is the outcome of my research and practice, which often begins with a text written by myself. Characters are obscured and disguised by the signs they adopt, rendering them as psychological ciphers for the unconscious. Spaces are used as a stage for interventions, and a labyrinth of signs accumulate into a surreal unravelling atmosphere.
