ARTIST STATEMENT

representing psychological states through performative video, photography and installation practice.

 

my practice explores issues of the self and the other, displacement of the soul, identity, alienation and psychological states of mind, in particular depression and anxiety. i believe that the serious nature of the sickness of the soul is exacerbated by the social and cultural values of the western world. my work tries to address some of these issues, by providing an insight into feelings of displacement. i have used video and photography as independent works and installation to discover visual forms and metaphors that represent these feelings of alienation. i am interested in subjective and distorted experiences of time, and use private and public sites to stage these.
i use screen-based media and photography since these media have a strong presence in everyday life, and are an important source of information within society. i am interested in exploring these media because of their relationship to culture and social values.
