My artworks, curatorial projects and writing redeploys fragments of cinema, architecture and cultural narratives to explore conflicting or transitional materialities and economies. The transportation of a crate of earth from Transylvania to Los Angeles via London and New York resulted in the merging of a gothic fiction with the banalities of transporting a material to its cinematic point of origin. More recently I was commissioned to reinterpret a post war town’s master plan, questioning the role of art in its original vision. The ensuing art works questioned the function of these spaces and objects in the present and the how economies of information supersede and alter these objects potential for agency.

I have exhibited at Cubitt Gallery, London (solo), the ICA, London, Jeffrey Charles Gallery, London, Project, Dublin and Raid Projects, Los Angeles. I have contributed to conferences and panel discussions at Tate Britain, the ICA and Milton Keynes Gallery and published with Mute Magazine and the Journal of Visual Arts Practices.
