              ABOUT

I am a multidisciplinary artist based in London. The purpose of my research is to playfully reveal the question of aesthetics and domination. In my work I directly expose contradictions, differences and singularities through the use of the body as an archive. My way of investigating this theme is through history, memory and the repetition of existence. I use mundane objects and motifs to ignite a praxis of post-identity. This is specifically evident in the video performances. I view my work as an instrument to activate and highlight the socio-political imbalance and self care with singularity.
