More recent work adopts theatrical devising techniques for installations positing the gallery as a stage, with projection screens standing in for actors – collections of extended monologue scripts are also the basis of performances that increasingly appear in both visual art and theatre contexts. Interdisciplinary collaboration is at the core of my practice. The ongoing creative partnerships I have developed with a diverse array of talented, highly respected performers enable a distinctive approach to the production of my work, and the modes of its presentation.
