Lives in

Works in


conceptual, figurative, digital, photography, performance, collective installation video-art


There is a strong sense of romanticism in my work, mainly in the roles which sound, performance and video is used as an outlet, to understand - in my own finite way - identity in a post human world, while addressing our innate longing for resolving existential questions of individuality, lack of faith and purposeful meaning.

These notions have evolved into the creation of ambiguous alter egos, and in response to the likes of Austin Osman Spare, Grace Jones, Katharina Sieverding, Derek Jarman, David Bowie, Matthew Barney, Laibach, JG Ballard, Marlene Diectrich, Laurie Anderson, Susan name but a few; my work radiates from the careful use of self image as a pure visual doctrine. Manifesting itself in various guises such as an androgynous cult figure, black bloc proletarian or now as a dystopian chanteuse.

I use this feminized guise to reference the founding constructs and Mise-en-scene of Cabaret -to engage, entice and repulse equally in a digital yet corporeal artifice.
