I am an artist based in Berlin. My work is concerned with the body. Through performance, sculptural installations, photography, video, and occasionally sound, I explore embodied experience within the anthropocene. My interest in this extends to the psychological and sociocultural mechanisms behind the compulsive obfuscation of this situation so, to put it more bluntly, I am interested in what it feels like to be a conscious meat body existing through a mass extinction event. My creative practice is a process of mourning that seeks paths to acceptance of, and resituatuation within, anthropogenic catastrophe. I draw on a range of influences and practices—butoh dance, shibari, ecology, hyperobjects, somatic trauma theory, memories, texts, improvisational movement, dialogue, touch—to intimately examine the texture of transitory moments through the stretching and blurring of physical and temporal borders, and to cultivate body/object ecotone spaces to explore communication, resistance and play.
