The first question you ask a stranger is what the person is called, but the second question is what the person does for work. It’s a question that can be answered in a few words, or a short sentence, and during this brief statement you will place the stranger in a social context, within a hierarchy. The following conversation will inevitably be affected by this information. Work, as the most fundamental function of distribution of resources defines our conception of self and our social relations. The focal point of my artistic practice is the contemporary conditions of life and labour, and the social structures that conditions the context in which collective and individual experiences are made. Through textile, installation, sculpture and drawing I process visual expressions of the effective body and it’s structuring surroundings. My artistic aim is to find the colour of unemployment, or the shape of workfare, so to speak.
