Statement

Using various strategies of documentation, my work examines issues of identity and social representation by focusing the lens on myself and my community. I explore the connections between constructed space and constructed subjectivity through sculpture, photography, video and projection. The spaces I create – queer, safe, architectural and emotional – form a critically reconstructed mirror of reality, an alternative environment in which all forms of intimacy are allowed to be visible. I use social and visual material of my own life to represent spaces of transformative potential and desire.
