I think, a lot. About hair. The shedding and the constant growing. The stretchy oily flaky skin, the smell of armpits, food and feet on public transport. I think of home. This is my space to think and shed, yet in the public I am ashamed of being human.
In my work I explore the connection between bodily experiences, emotions and memories. The main themes behind my work revolve around sentiment, distress, abjection and the body. Through the combination of different materials and forms, I investigate the boundaries and fluctuations between the pleasant and repulsive. I utilise scale to reference the physicality and tangibility of the body.
Additionally, the concept of sentiment is explored by capturing the scent of personal belongings through the process of distillation.
I also like to scan myself.
