Central Saint Martins - UAL
I am a British Artist in London. I spent several years in Italy, where I had my first training in photography, followed by post graduate studies in the UK: graduating Pg Cert Photography Central St Martins, 2007 and MA Photography London College of Communication, 2009.
My practice incorporates photography, video, installation, sound, found images, text and objects to probe gender roles and hierarchical structures in patriarchal society. I am inspired by Zen, Neuroscience, Arte Povera and Eco-feminism to explore human and animal consciousness, and analogous behaviours and emotions; such as empathy, play, fear, joy, grief and anxiety. My work draws inspiration from C J Adam's theory of the absent referent. I am committed to working in the area of Arts and Health.
Exhibitions include Curzon Cinema Soho, Brighton Photo Fringe, Bath Royal Literary & Scientific Institute, Barbican Arts Trust, Krakow Photomonth and Photomonth East London. In 2015 I will show work at the National Museum of Animals & Society, LA, USA, to commemorate C J Adam's 25th Anniversary of The Sexual Politics of Meat; with my writing and photos published in The Art of the Animal.
