Fine Art Programme; Associate Lecturer (Critical Studies), BA Fine Art

I am an artist and researcher working across performance cultures including live art, installation, video and writing. I completed a PhD at Goldsmiths on the subject of Trashy Tendencies in Contemporary Art and Performance (2013).

My interests are in minor processes, communities and colloquial languages. This is exemplified in my current project Fan Riot, which explores the contemporary phenomenon of online fandom and participatory fan cultures.

My work has been included in shows and programmes at Jerwood Visual Arts (2016); The Show Room; Artsadmin; Latitude Festival (2015); Wellcome Collection; South London Gallery (2014); ANTI Festival, Finland; National Portrait Gallery; Reactor Halls (2013); Hayward Gallery; Duckie; Trouble Festival, Belgium (2012).

My publications include articles in General Fine Arts (2016); Performance Research (2015); The New Inquiry (2015); Live Art Almanac 3 (2013); Performing Ethos (2012); and co-editorial of Dance Theatre Journal (2011).

I am also an associate lecturer on MFA The Body in Performance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
