‘The act of looking back, of seeing with fresh eyes, of entering an old text from a new critical direction – is for woman far more than a chapter in cultural history; it is an act of survival.”
I’ve been working as an artist for 20 years. I work in a range of media including performance, video, painting and sculpture. I make work to re-negotiate the ways in which we perceive women, their lives and their lived experience. Much of my practice works with time, history and fluid representations of self. Studio works use bitumen paint and found objects to re-image stereotypes of women and mothers, exploring material metaphors that enable new thinking and empathy for our selves, and others. Research and writing are very much part of my practice and I am currently writing Acts of Survival, a book about performance and art.
