Artist’s statement

We all spring into the world from the home.  And different homes catapult us out on different trajectories.

Living happily in Egypt twice, spending ambivalent, short blocks in US and long sentences in UK;  I have been thrown between different cultural takes on consumption, sharing and how we welcome people (if at all).  

As a cultural practitioner (with an MA in Group & Inter-Cultural Therapy) I explore how we share resources and personal information and also how we move in shared space.  The latter has  not been a recognised subject (until recently perhaps…) but it should have been.  I call it Social Choreography and explore this and the wider theme of ‘sharing’ through interactive installations (which often involve me as one of the interactive parts).  My approach is both light and searching.   

Painting, sculpture and textiles take up solitary time.  Cultural themes and my journey through womanhood, often crop up here too – sometimes uninvited…
