I'm fascinated by live confrontations of spectators with visually fragmented bodies. An arm, a hand, maybe a leg.
I like to visually deconstruct the human body alongside fragmented pieces of text and spoken word.
My work touches on themes of hiding, self-preservation and confessional writing.
I'm always up for collaborations.
