In the pile-up of language, spectacle, and garbage, which constitutes our amnesiac present, one role for art is to create a clearing within this petrified landscape, and, through a reordering all this new and obsolete stuff, through bricolage and play, construct new meanings, new conceptions of reality, shot through with historical memory.
Cross-disciplinary in scope, my artwork investigates the intersection between materials, history, language, and ideology. Many would characterize my overall material sensibilities and aesthetic as grotesque. The work addresses the need for a posthuman/nonhuman perspective, counter to the reigning tendencies toward humancentric hubris. Humour is explored through a corporeal register: humans’ underlying animality and mortality, as well as the absurdity of humanist moral positions vis-à-vis life on this planet.
