    Artist Statement

    The space we inhabit and the items contained within these spaces act as a physical log of our life’s experience. My site-based practice uses the location of the attic and its contents as a ground for my video and performance work.
    Through the creation of work within this space, my developed characters interact with the surroundings and objects in a ritualistic manner.
    Exploring the four main rites of passage; birth, adolescence, marriage and death, I create corresponding animal effigies in the medium of print and laser cut objects. These objects act as a tool to log my site within a gridded display. Logging and text are important to my practice as they act as a map or key to my site and take the place of religious text or manuscripts in performative ritualistic acts.
