I am a visual artist, curator, and researcher, specialising in the relationship between art and anthropology. I use a range of media and techniques, including artist books, postcards, drawing, sculpture, curating, and online writing.
My creative practice often involves collections and collecting, taking inspiration from museums and their predecessors; the Reliquary, the Wunderkammer, and the Cabinet of Curiosity. The development of museums and their links to colonialism also encompasses aspects of institutional critique, digital humanities and tourism studies.
My use of museum collections and other cultural artefacts discusses the relative value and impact of appropriation in Contemporary art. This takes into account both historical and contemporary issues, including folklore, myths, and memes.
