Social and political implications cannot be detached from objects. I am interested in how I can re-arrange the ‘thing’, so its symbolic connotations emerge or are contradicted. My work combines sculpture, paint and installation, and can be both formal and visceral, anarchic and structured, irreverent and challenging.
I take objects to pieces or cut them with a jigsaw -chairs, drawers, earth, ironing boards, books, language, fairy tales, and filmic images/text- and questioning their many facets – patriarchal, gendered or heteronormative – use a feminist gaze, to re-frame them.
I have been active in creating and supporting opportunities for feminist art in London over the past 16 years, discussion groups, interactive events, many exhibitions, art, in collaboration with friends/artists and as founder member of FANS OF FEMINISM.
