(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.
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 founding curator of Kunsthallo gallery.
