About —

My projects are produced on unceded Kulin Nations Country where I work and live.

I work within the mediums of video, audio, Super 8 film, photography, live and recorded performance.
 
My practice examines various representational strategies, each one linked by an interest in the body and its agency within the everyday. Recurrent themes include humour and tension between received cultural values, individual agency and free will.

I am represented by Sutton Gallery in Melbourne.

Live performance, ACCA Pop Up Program, 54th Venice Biennale, 2011

For this performance I travelled from Melbourne to Venice with my leg in plaster. I attended the Vernissage of the 54th Venice Biennale and asked participating and well-known artists to sign my cast. I then removed the signed cast and carried it home as a sculptural work.

This project was commissioned by the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art through the ACCA Pop Up Program with support by the Victorian Government through Arts Victoria.
