London born | Brighton based | multidisciplinary practice

Activated by found objects and remnants (be these precious or mundane), and by the potential within material matter itself, work reflects underlying preoccupations and behavioural patterns. Through seemingly banal and repetitive processes, such as the use of the multiple object or clone, there is a concern for unearthing and recreating with a tendency to assert systems of order and display.

Recent works, architectural playgrounds, tackle notions of absence and displacement. Either safe havens or abandoned sites, they elevate and transform materials from the discarded or unseen to that which is again purposeful and newly provocative. Domestic in scale these small constructions serve to secure and protect; beacons, rafts, and make-shift camps that seek stability and protection. Through a pursuit intent on synthesising fragments of the everyday outcomes play the roles of guardians, comforters, triggers, and provokers.
