The work is the process
and the process is the work.

‘Body based’ Live Art explores inner thoughts through outward acts. Physical actions and visual tableaux display the journey of personal searches which are performed to a public audience for them to possess and interpret. My current work examines the unconscious: fears are confronted and the mind and body are challenged through psychological tasks and physical duration. Process governs my work and the methods within alchemy and psychoanalysis inspire and are woven into the ‘actuations’ within the performance.

Embodiment and the philosophical notions of physical and mental being lay prominent in my work. The unconscious element between performer and audience is explored and challenged throughout the process of the work.
