The costume and performance was a response to the sound piece created by artist Julia Wolf and the 10th Annual Central Saint Martins Art Auction at the Lethaby Gallery. The auction presented 82 lots of wall-based artworks. Combining sound and performance - art forms that spill out of the frame and transgress the limits of the image and wall space. Matching impalpable with corporeal, humorous with terrifying, to bring about questions and invite viewers to consider the value of artists and limitations of marketable art.

Uniting with artist Lucrezia de Fazio to create the immersive work, centred around a symbol and act of hands. Combing two drawing and working styles, which oppose, challenge and compliment one another, the two artists build a bridge. Drawings cover the layers of sculpted space, a motion animation of delicately drawn hands are projection mapped towards the frenzied performer, lit up it moves together with every edge of the room, becoming and lighting up the neurosis of the room.

A site-specific installation and performance at Exposed Arts Projects, a disused Jaguar showroom and garage in Kensington curated by Sasha Burkhanova-Khabadze.

The work centred around an image, be it found, made, edited and explored the work of photography as a focal tool in the process of confrontation between past, present, future and between idenity, heritage and exile.

Inspired by Baudilaire’s Spleen and taking photography as a point of departure where the proces supersedes content, The work attempts to look at a technological process within human relations. Faced with a technological structure which both underlines and diminishes a structure of a social circle, repetition, isolation of language and binary symbolism is used through durational performance to zoom in on daily gestures and codes of technology that make up the cycle. 

Gestures and echoes of: “like” “block” “delete” “follow” from performers are like those of the Greek chorus commenting on the collective consciousness of our time. Matching historically valued and invested materials, forms and motifs with contemporary matter, from gold and Oedipus feet to where thumbs, hands and heads dominate the body...Here, body and language are tools as much as inconveniences, sacrificed for an image. The desire to possess and leave a mark is as much desired as never acquired.

The exhibition was hosted by Lincoln Projects.

Inspired by gendered power dynamics and various forms of oppression, the work fused dround-like sound, dance and screen work to create a place in time, where memory is revisted, and where resistance, fear and defiance is challenged and denied at the same time through unnerving and unrealiable narrative. 

The work was created for the Whitechapel Gallery Presents series and presented at the Whitechapel Gallery on teh 18th October 2018.
