Artist Statement
In my work I examine the way our personal, cultural and political narratives are shaped by a sense of rigid identity and the dominant understanding of history as a series of events fixed in our past, forever unchanging. My view is that our histories are always before us, to be constantly altered and reinterpreted moment to moment. I work mostly with found images, audio, video and text, recontextualizing these materials in an effort to illuminate hidden qualities and discover new relationships.
