In her continued work with material performances the artist devises technologically driven systems that facilitate and explore kinetic and cyclical behaviour of natural elements. Chosen materials are located in a perpetual movement or forced into a collaborative gesture with one another. Without a fixed outcome, the process ‘the work’ is never fully predictable or under control. The work engages in a feminist perspective of vulnerability, focusing on processes rather than an end result. Speaking for physical, emotional and material spaces that are somehow in between, undefined, or against a monumental or even singular outcome. She addresses the politics of materials by playing with their properties and agency within a constructed situation. The artist is exploring these points of intersections as metaphors for the constituents of our lives, our connection to nature and the space between nature and the humanly constructed.
