A Resource for Performing Artists, Scholars and Audiences.
I consider performance art as a means of changing our perspective on the world, a moment of marked consciousness that creates the inner space for a change.
With a strong focus in action, my practice is about divine as ritual behavior and focuses on spirituality, sexual encounters and gender fluidity.
In my work I use appropriation to comment on, reveal and deconstruct the ideas of originality, art, identity, gender and sex. And influenced by my self-imposed exile, and investigates intergenerational trauma, war, and displacement, with an analytical view of societal structures, including religion, political strategies and cultural hierarchies.
I have an empathic understanding of many of the subjects I explore, delving into my own experiences of trauma and exile.
Action of sex, sexual trauma and taboo. Those often hidden in shame. I share the stories often hidden in secret, with concealed actions of brutal honesty, an honesty that permeates my voice and breaks the silence.
My passion is art and people.The interest is how we intersect art and the community. And, the people who are in between, in between the worlds, in between genders, and in between countries and borders. Borders separate, genders separate, dogmas separate. The works explores the themes of un-separating, the crossing of the borderlands of sexuality.
I share these via performance art in a memoir; a memoir of a child surviving with scars, both physical and emotional, who finds a way to survive by making art.
