(b. 1979) I am a British artist based in London. Working across video, sculpture, drawing and performance, I intervene in systems and structures: queering power, disordering norms, producing crises.

My work is playful - often absurd. But embedded in its subversive logic is a challenge to the tyranny of common sense. A belief that other worlds are possible. And a zealous conviction that art can bring them into being.


I think about : Power, Empire, reason, limits, humour, consumerism, Mark Zuckerberg, myths, farce, ideology, disobedience, Jacques Tati, post-colonial theory, sense, resistance, advertising, disinformation, para-fictions and the counter-hegemonic power of nonsense.




I have exhibited at the ICA, Modern Art Oxford, Fondazione Prada, EVA Biennale, Z33, Kunstverein Wiesbaden, Victoria & Albert Museum, Jerwood Space, Korean Cultural Centre and Southbank Centre. Residencies include Delfina Foundation, Raw Material Company, Arts Catalyst, SOMA and Hospitalfield. In 2022, I have upcoming institutional solo exhibitions at Kunstverein Harburger Bahnhof and Casino Luxembourg.

Having attended the Slade School for Fine Art (MA, Distinction), I was a fellow of the Whitney Museum Studio Program. I lecture at Goldsmith’s and London College of Communication, and am the curator and founding director of Kunsthallo gallery.
