Artist Statement

I use the campsite as a model for works that reenact the making of a place. Employing sculpture, photography, and architectural intervention, I address the contradictory nature of these sites and the role played by the body in activating them. Combining ready-made forms and selfmade scaffolding in a “garage” aesthetic, my works are defined by a tension that suggests a risk of collapse. Equally, they could be disassembled, reconfigured, or packed at any moment. Either way, they are ready for constant departure.
