Video and installation are key forms used to delve into my fascination with the complexity of perception and its potential distortions. One of my recent works, Cupboards, a piece in which I climb through my partner’s kitchen wearing only a slip, defines this process. The piece was conceived, performed and filmed in one evening, making its physicality muscular and urgent, and its sound mundanely authentic. Cupboards explores domesticity, confinement and legitimization, set to a symphony of the sound of my breath and growing exhaustion. The low-fi combination of lighting, and improvised movement creates a strong sense of anxiety and suspense.
Whilst, Hopscotch is a playful 7 minute performance video exploring the idea of the self in a game of my own making. The sign of “No parking” equals parking. The street is a playground. The piece is also an ode to childerns bedtime stories, where one can do or say the most outlandish things.
