Omschrijving werk

I am an interdisciplinary artist and performer from the U.K with a background in visual arts. My research stems from psychopathology, incorporating my own struggles with mental health alongside an in-depth study of the voice, the inner voice and the mouth from a psychological, neurological and philosophical position. My research is an interrogation of the human voice; the voice of the self, the inner voice, the voice of the other and the voice of mental illness. I question the distinction, the boundaries and the amalgamation of different voices within one mind. Overtime, living with a psychiatric disorder has unintentionally integrated as an intangible element to my artistic practice. The mouth is both my site of anxiety and my artistic medium. By facing the site of anxiety, fragility becomes strength resulting in raw, empathetic explorations of the mind. My works consists of performance, live art installations, 3D-objects, multi-sensory experience and video.

Titel Choreography of the Mouth - Nil by Mouth

Choreographyofthemouth- BITE,CHEW,SPIT
Titel Choreographyofthemouth- BITE,CHEW,SPIT
Jaartal 2017
Omschrijving When we pause to accept boredom’s invitation, it engulfs us. It creates a confrontation of the self in moments of ‘emptiness’, daring you to engage in all its uncertain possibilities. The mouth is used as a performative tool to play with boredom to cross the invisible (boundaries) between artist and audience, control and a loss of it. A silent conversation lingers between the teeth, scratches at the throat, provokes the tongue and rests gently upon the lips. Yet no words are spoken.
Techniek performance, live art installation

Teaism -the habitual act of making tea
Titel Teaism -the habitual act of making tea
Jaartal 2016
Omschrijving An audience are invited to an imaginary Tea party, where the objects are made entirely out of chocolate. Tension unfolds as boiling water is introduced to the now melting objects. This work plays with repetition, systematic behaviour and ephemeral materials to question the borders between delusion and reality within the human condition.
