My practice is deeply concerned with the body, rhythm and feeling. I am exploring dissociative tendencies between mind and body; approaching from personal experience of how culture and media has frequently taught me to view, hold and analyse my body at a distance; alongside the ways I’ve allowed it to be treated by others. With the rapid digitisation of our lives – affecting us both personally and politically – a detachment from our bodies is becoming easier and I am interested in how we can anchor ourselves around and within navigating online. Through interrogating my own material and found footage I want to open out internalised misogynies to thrust dialogue around the hierarchies of different bodies into consciousness.
I see expressive drawing, performance and poetry as a methodology to play with and align our internal rhythms, and in this act as a form of self-care, self-learning and self-love. Furthermore, emphasising these acts with the political power and function they hold, not just the personal. These themes usually manifest as films and I edit intuitively and emotionally to communicate a tactility through the screen whilst mining the performative act of making itself.
