I am a visual/performance/social practice artist, activist and curator. Within this context, I examine language, identity and dialogues happening globally and locally. Given the global conditions of political, environmental and economic uncertainity, I explore Utopian spaces through performance, installation, drawing, painting and, digital mixed media based on my lived landscapes and the anthropocene. Growing up in the 'Troubles’ in Belfast, has prompted me to explore human rights issues, power structures and environmental justice issues addressing contested spaces .
I work also in collaborations with other artists and communities. My work tentatively disputes the binaries we reconstruct between Self and Other and between our cannibal and civilised selves. The bodily human edge has a strong influence on the processes I use as an artist in which I bring the skin to the fore as the border and boundary which seeks respect of the other.
I see all my work as an invitation to a playful lateral conversation, which is simultaniosly deadly serious and is a radical rethink through art methodology, research and practice.
