What is a body? A body that desires, a body that sounds? I investigate how our bodies are interdependent, failing and empathic. I explore the ways in which we listen to, against and despite human violences big and small.
Through live and recorded talking, whispering, yelling and listening, I consider bodies as sites of knowledge, and communication as a social practice. My projects take shape as installations, recordings and live performances. They occur in galleries, online and live, and most often in public space.
