Lovers (11:11)

Placing ritual at the centre of the drawing practice to manifest forms and patterns tracing a doorway to the simulataneous world of birth and death -- moving from the edge into the centre and returning to the source to re-member oneself into wholeness.

Symbiosis (Anger Understanding Itself)

Taking the metaphor from the “Weighing of the Heart” ceremony from the Ancient Egyptians to bring forth traces and forms of developing and eviolving consciousness through a ritual of drawing.

Lot #83
Performance (with Julia Wolf)
Tights, synthetic wig, hollow fibre, sound
Dimensions variable

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.

Installation & performance
(with Lucrezia de Fazio)

Charcoal and ink drawings, mask, projection, mirror sheets, wooden tables and chair
Dimensions variable

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.
