Working across sculpture, installation and writing, my practice takes a highly physical approach, crossing between a very abstract grappling with matter and a more poetic engagement with language, yet always drawing on place as a source of meaning. Through an interest in an expanded materiality of landscape, I look to question our interactions with the natural world; in particular, to explore the various streams of information available to us, and how they might be mediated, interrupted or re-directed in some way. My PhD project considers our shifting relation with materiality, not only through how we are affected by matter, things and objects, but also how materials are subject to change. The project feels ever expanding, and increasingly brings to the fore wider questions about the parameters of research, fieldwork, and practice-based enquiry.
The research project is supervised by Brighid Lowe at the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL and Johanna Malt at King’s College London.
