Hailing from the UK, my practice encompasses setting up conditions for reconstituting the materials that comprise an object, in order to tease out one other permutation of use, and, I also follow my interest in certain social and economic systems in order to produce interventionalist outcomes. Through appropriation on a micro scale, I wish to expose social norms aligned with a worship of expediency, which I find highly questionable.
Following the award of a Grant For The Arts from Arts Council England in 2007, I undertook a residency of my own design, and exhibited the outcome. I have shown broadly in UK art spaces; Transmission (Glasgow), Bureau, (Manchester), Trade City, (The Manchester International Festival), Hackney Wick(ed) Festival (London), Plan-9 (Bristol), and in 2008 I exhibited as part of the Suite collective in The Cable Factory, (Finland). I have collaborated with Turkish artist and 2009 Venice Biennale representative Ahmet Ogut, together producing a discrete intervention, which is documented in The Centrifuge Art Prize catalogue. Recently in 2011, as part of the group Archipelago, I received the first micro-commission in a new programming series from Cornerhouse art gallery, and set up and undertook an exchange residency between Flux Factory and Islington Mill in Manchester UK.
