My artistic practice addresses issues of spatial justice in order to amplify, mediate, or divert structures of power through individual and collective gestures. Using installation, sculpture, performance, sound, and collaborative approaches, my work negotiates visibility, belonging, and the politics of location. I respond to the psychic and physical atmosphere of place through multi-year projects that span a range of formats and scales. Working within historically marginalized sites often means dealing with the harrowing repercussions of systemic erasure. Therefore, it is essential that the artistic projects I generate with others are based in forms of liberatory action. Influenced by the hyper-local, I challenge understandings of geography and the social constructions of space by mediating, subverting, and flipping the familiar or unnoticed to provoke new interpretations.
