We don’t often get to see the subtle politics at play behind closed doors, but such domestic politics have arguably the most profound impact upon us all.

My practice questions well-established social constructs and policies at play in our everyday lives, with a particular interest in façades, those foisted upon us or self-imposed. Drawing on an anthropological framework of investigation, I explore the duality of the domestic and the political, often re-appropriating domestic paraphernalia and cultural vernacular. I work in a wide range of media including: Sculpture (olfactory, sound, social, reappropriated ready-mades), photography and mixed media.
