I’m an artist and producer based at Rhubaba Gallery & Studios in Edinburgh, working collaboratively across performance, audio, video, installation, photography and drawing. I conduct continual embodied fieldwork and tune in to the constant becoming of places and ecologies, creating gestural works of art.
My artworks have ranged from performance scores mapping the movements of birds to a multi-channel sound installation communicating with a dying starfish travelling through space, to a short comedic film about the violence of mowing the lawn. I’m interested in leaning into and finding hope in, the darkness of the ecological crisis and the inseparable links between nature and culture. My work is intimate, and I open myself up to be vulnerable with the rest of nature through radical interventions.
Since 2010 I have worked with farmers and growers, activists and artists as well as art spaces and institutions. My film When are you going to cut the grass?, 2020 is to be screened at IUCN World Conservation Conference 2021 (Marseille); Wild Philosophy, 2018 took place at Capel y Craig, commissioned by Chapter Arts Centre (Cardiff) and LADA (London).
