How can you infiltrate an unsuspecting, un-wanting, un-academic audience? The method of practice is reactive and intuitive, work is both playful and pertinent to the current political climate and working-class culture. Film, sculpture and public interventions aim to reflect a pathos of everyday life, subverted and situated in disguise.
The relapsing objects of childhood memory are remade and reformatted as art. Universally representative of a specific time and place in England and reflect the experiences of growing up in the post-industrial town of Dudley, my primary source of insight and muse. Forging the concept of Dudley is a universal metaphor for most of the country, places that exist on hope and promise but trail pathos and disappointment.
