I work in a range of media including video, performance, drawing, learning and social arts practice.

My recent practice has explored the effect of digital technology on our lived experience. My work feeds off our political, social and technological evolution (or regression) through collaging historical narratives, making comments on the future, all the while considered within the modes of science fiction and horror. I was recently selected for Survey – a major exhibition by Jerwood Space presenting works by 15 early-career UK artists in 2018/19.

Recent exhibitions and performances include Survey, Jerwood Space, London; Bluecoat, Liverpool and BALTIC – Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead; Experimentica, Chapter, Cardiff (2017); Up-On Live Art Festival, Chengdu / Chongqing, China (2016); Testspace, Spike Island, Bristol (2016); Europa, Transition Gallery, London (2016); and Uprisings, MOSTYN, Llandudno (2015). Recent residencies include URRA, Buenos Aires, Argentina (2017); Standpoint Futures, Standpoint Gallery, London (2015). Over the last four years, I have exhibited at Whitechapel, Baltic, Nottingham Contemporary, Tate Modern and Liverpool Biennial and has worked with HLF, ACW, BBC, Cadw & The Space.
