I create installations incorporating sculptural elements, performance art, costumes, sound pieces, and theatrical lighting. I work with themes about the fragility of the body and the frailty of life. This committed exploration on these topics often makes me very apprehensive, but is the core and strength of my creative process.
While creating and performing, I explore my intense anxieties about mortality and the universal experience of living precariously in a body made of flesh and bone. I confront my extreme fear of trauma and distress in the body by investigating human anatomy, death rituals, and the abject.
Last, it is my intention to provide a stimulating space wherein viewers may freely contemplate mortality, loss, and the relationship to their bodies. My goal is not to appease and comfort, but rather to agitate and illuminate places that are usually left unexplored.
