My body of work aims to confront socio-cultural issues that lie at the core of modern society and with what lies hidden beneath in the everyday lived
experience of the marginal individual and their relationship with the world they always already inhabit.

The images shown, whilst bearing relation to the tradition of the documentary, are positioned in a dialectical confrontation between fine art and media, in the
gap between art and life, between the real and the representational, ‘… closing the gap between art and life destroys art and, at the same time universalizes
it.’ Artaud, 1925

I am undertaking a critical genealogy of human displacement from the 19th century into late modernity, tracing the socio-political abjection through
narratives of loss and movement. In this way I will look to connect my work with artists through the centuries who have depicted the abject ‘Other.’
