“My work incorporates vernacular and constructed approaches to making art. In particular, I am drawn to the idiosyncrasies of memory and how personal histories intersect with politics and are contextualized by the time periods in which they are made. I research, create and perform archives slipping between record, the remembered and the reconstructed.”
