UNDER CONSTRUCTION

I am currently undertaking practice-based PhD research at the ECA, University of Edinburgh. In my research project Doing the Crease: Subjectivity, Success and Failure in a Liberation of Folds I work with the idea of the fold as a doubling or distortion to investigate, by repetition and expansion, what subjectivity and emancipation mean in the context of word and image. I write short, abstracted fictions and explore their form and content through visual means such as sculpture, video and performance, often combined with audio recordings of my voice. Moving across the registers of visual art and writing, I question how text turns into a character, what role(s) this character plays in a visual art context, and if the materiality of language is tragic.
