I'm an artist from Glasgow and currently based in London, UK. My multidisciplinary practice explores the entanglements between domestic and urban space through matters of community, sustainability, and obsolescence, and the effects of globalisation and technological development.
I have exhibited and screened internationally at venues including Kunstraum Kreuzberg (for Transmediale 2021, Berlin); Science Gallery (London); nGbK (Berlin); TACO! (London); Apexart (New York); The Blackwood Gallery (Toronto); Recent Activity (Birmingham); Tate Britain (London); Mauve (Vienna); t-space (Milan) and Collective (Edinburgh). I have undertaken residencies with ZK/U: Centre for Art and Urbanistics (Berlin); Inside Out Art Museum (Beijing), Temporary Art Platform (Beirut), The Art House (Wakefield); The White Building (London) and I was a 2017 recipient of the Red Mansion Award Residency (Beijing). I have an MFA from Goldsmiths University (London, 2017), a BFA from The Glasgow School of Art (Glasgow, 2008), and in 2015 was an Associate Artist with Open School East (London).
Alongside gallery-based exhibitions and events, I have organised a number of projects that filter into the everyday, commercial spaces that her work is engaged with. These have included Comfort Zones - a series of symposia on the subject of comfort zones held in the showrooms of various IKEA stores through the UK and China (2013-14), and a bus tour to a landfill site for Global Shadow Local Mist (2014). ASSET ARREST is an ongoing project and podcast series that addresses issues of financialized housing and real estate and their impact upon communities; the meaning of ‘community’; ways of living and urban space. An episode of the podcast typically revolves around a viewing of a different residential property with a different invited guest each time. Guests are invited to talk about their own work, to share their knowledge and experiences on related issues, and to respond to the property that we view together and its place within a wider urban and global context.
I have been a guest tutor at various Universities throughout the UK and I am currently completing an AHRC funded practice based PhD at Northumbria University titled Infrastructural Cosiness: Financialized Housing and the Performance of Community.
