Inspired by the archetypes of the alchemist and the fool, I explore the opposites of knowing and not knowing as intelligent naiveté. I write poems in words, performances and visual art that are an earnest and absurd play between the simpleton-jester-clown and the disciplined practitioner of The Great Work. This work includes geometric drawings, cyanotype prints, paintings, videos and installations. My solo, interactive and group performances focus on the precise execution of pure, raw and improvised play.
My work has been exhibited and/or performed at instituions such as the Schaulager, Kunsthalle Basel, Kunsthaus Baselland and the Gessneralle Zurich in Switzerland; the Leopold Museum and Volx/Margarethen Theathre in Vienna Austria; and at the Third International Visual Festival of Patras Greece.
I have been shortlisted for the Swiss Performance Art Award (2017), performed solo pieces for Tino Sehgal at the Foundation Beyeler and Art Basel Parcour (2017/2018), received a danceWeb scholarship at ImpulsTanz in Vienna (2016) and been published by artist Paul Chan (2014).
I was born in 1968 in Vancouver Canada and am a citizen of Canada, the United States and Switzerland.
