England is Mine
Trafalgar Square, London – 2010
Feral (2012) was commissioned by the Vitrine Gallery, London, England. This film touches upon issues of power, surveillance and the demonization of ‘youth’ since the London Riots. Five ‘feral youth’ ride home-made hobby-horses on the deserted streets of London while the city sleeps.
LUPA (Lock Up Performance Art) was a DIY artist run space that operated out of a garage on the council estate where I live in East London. It exhibited over 150 performances by national and international artists before finally closing its doors in June 2013. LUPA was co-curated by Rachel Dowle, Kate Mahony, Jordan McKenzie and Aaron Williamson.
Minimal Interventions is an ongoing series of works that temporarily highjack classic works of Minimal art and aesthetics from the sixties and seventies. For a short period of time I co-author the works, inhabiting the historical canon and subverting it for my own uses. These works question ideas surrounding originality, authorship and ownership.

Please Stand Back
Mimicking the iconic minimal and formal investigations into movement performed in the 1960’s and 70’s, Please Stand Back takes these actions onto the street. The iconic computerised voice of the reversing vehicle creates a score for these absurd urban gestures.
