I make work with a strong performative element in mediums of video, sound, installation and live performance.
My works are often documents of choreographed and repetitive exercises between individuals. Exploring boundaries of communication, control and negotiation between people is one of my primary interests, and I sometimes engage with close family members, specific groups of local people or audiences.
