I have co-curated Visions in the Nunnery with Tessa Garland, a programme of moving image and performance. It opened during Frieze week and so far has showcased the work of Dryden Goodwin, Marina Abramovich, Susan Hiller, Webb and Ellis. We are preparing for a symposium headlined by Ori Gersht chaired by me and including presentations from Thomas Marcusson, Olga Koroleva, Laura Leuzzi, a performance by Lizzie Masterton and the screening of a selection of works from the Roma Media Art Festival selected by Laura Leuzzi e Valentino Catricalà.
On 24th November, I will also stage a hybrid live-networked Performance as part of Visions in the Nunnery. Watch this space for a link if you wish to participate.
I am part of the project What Happens to Us curated by Amy McDonnell and Marsha Bradfield, taking place at Wimbledon Space between 15th November and 8th December 2016. It examines democracy as a system of community formation. I will be using hybrid conviviality to create a setting for shared reflection on 6th December and there will be a closing event on 8th December.
I am also showing work in Dundee in December 2016. Details here soon.
In October 2015, my video Are You Talking to me was included in the exhibition accompanying the conference Feminism in London.
In April 2016 I performed By Invitation Only as a networked performance at the launch of the Roma Media Art Festival
Between May 2015 and April 2016, I was part of the Associate Artist scheme at Firstsite. Supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, the programme includes a residency at Firstsite, public-facing outcomes (events/ publications etc.), and national and international research trips. By Invitation Only was first conceived in this very supportive context.
In July 2015, I worked on and co-hosted #Transacting: A Market of Values with Critical Practice at Chelsea College of Art. We are now working on the #Transacting publication. We are now working on a publication to capture the dynamics of this amazing event
Artist and researcher, I studied at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, UAL, and in 2014 completed the practice-based PhD Intimations: Videoperformance and Relationality at the University of Westminster.
My recent networked body of work examines the potential of sharing food remotely as a strategy to examine remote intimacy.
My videoperformances focusing on relationships and intimate interactions form a coherent body of work that make full use of the power of screens to activate mediated relationality. My work has been exhibited in Europe, the USA, Russia and Japan.
Since 2013 I have been a research fellow at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design (University of Dundee). The book Rewind Italia: Early Italian Video Art will be published by John Libbey Publishing in 2015 and include her chapter Authorship, collaborations and international contaminations: Videoperformance in Italy in the ‘70s. I am currently contributing to the research project EVWA.
I am course leader at the University Centre Colchester, as well as associate lecturer at Wimbledon College of Art (UAL).
As an active member of the research cluster Critical Practice based at Chelsea College of Art and Design (UAL), I have been involved in developing practice-based research strategies focused on shared knowledge production, expanded performative events, participatory art practices, and alternative collaborative methodologies. Most recently, #Transacting: A Market of Values.
I have been co-curating the moving image and performance programme Visions in the Nunnery at the Nunnery Gallery, London, since 2007, as well as organizing related events, discussions and symposia, and publishing reviews and essays.
