I am a transdisciplinary artist with a research-based and socially engaged practice. My practice encompasses writing, performance, storytelling, photography, film, audio and workshops.
Through collaborative processes, my practice engages with language, cartography, movement, speculative fiction and decolonial theory with a critical approach to themes of exploration, control, nationalism, migration, space travel and astronomy.
My recent practice and research is concerned with practices of bordering and othering, the spaces they inhabit and the languages they employ. I have been focusing on connections, real and imagined, between the sky, the sea and the border. I am interested in spaces of care and solidarity, exploring storytelling as a fluid mode of exchange; countering and resisting the narratives of control and hostility in the UK.
Across projects and scales, I consider our bodily and spatial relationships with language, shaping the migration of our words – themselves maps of their own journeys, travelling through linguistic roots and resurfacing in partially remembered or imagined times and places. I am interested in how language, both porous and plural, exists at the intersection of past, present and future, allowing an insight into our histories and also a framework with which to shape our futures.
