My artistic practice is built upon a foundation of uncertainty, curiosity, a will to heal and an insistence upon freedom. Fluidly moving through video, sculpture, text, photography, and performance; my research-based practice incorporates, post-colonial, socio-political, and art historical texts, searching-not for answers but-to feed my obsession with this idea of being unbound, of being more than my body. Ironically, I must look to my body to escape its limitations. Through my personal history, I explore the binding nature of bodily signification; asking of the possibility to un-align sign from the signifier, of the possibility to create non-totalizing identity structures, of the possibility to assert your agency while acknowledging inherent antagonism and of the possibility to do so while not participating in hegemonic practices
