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.

The Velodrome Project was a one-day public event held at the Brunswick Cycling Velodrome in Melbourne. Alicia Frankovich and I made three sculptural works on the velodrome field; a large black circle painted directly onto the grass, a wooden section of roller coaster (based on the ‘The Big Dipper’ in St. Kilda) and a 6 x 4 metre blue stretched canvas that was held perpendicular by a wooden frame.

The audience was invited to view this spectacle as part of a one-day event, which included gymnastic performances by the artists and a ‘sculptural’ performance with a parachute. The Brunswick Cycling Club participated in the event by conducting training sessions throughout the day. The Velodrome Project was viewed from stadium seating, however bike riders were able to circumnavigate the event via the velodrome track. A catalogue was produced with an essay by Alex Martinis Roe.
