My artistic practice engages archival research along with performance and video. As an artist, I am interested in how history can shape the ways in which current knowledge is constructed and conveyed. In my work I use archival, found images to reconstruct and reinterpret stories, myths and religious texts.

I am also drawn towards issues around the colonial project and identity politics as these issues have greatly impacted my own identity and practice. In much of my current work, I rely on a collaborative process to filter and shift the narratives I find. This means that I work along with other artists to inform my research and aesthetic. I continue to use this method to strength the basis of my work and to shape the ways in which my archive of research grows. I see this process of reconstructing stories as a means to make sense of knowledge production and to create a sense of placement in history. Through my work, I hope to show how knowledge can be reedited and made to fit my own understanding of the world around me.
