Since graduating from the Basel Art Academy in 2016, my work has been shown in institutions such as the Schaulager, Kunsthaus Baselland, Kunsthalle Basel and the Gessneralle in Switzerland; the Leopold Museum and Volx/Margarethen Theatre in Austria and the Gerdarsafn-Kóopavogur Museum in Iceland.
Some excerpts from my career include a nomination for the Swiss Art Award (2020) and Swiss Performance Art Award (2017), a danceWeb scholorship (Vienna 2016), a GGG Atelier Stipendium (Basel 2016-18) and a Kultur Basel-Stadt project grant (2018). My work has been represented by Contemporary Monk at the Brussels Gallery Weekend 2019 and Art Rotterdam 2020. My first book of poems, The Question was published as an electronic book in 2014 by Badlands Unlimited and in print in 2019 by Nilo press.
Some of the artists and curators I have worked with include Tino Sehgal, Simone Forti, Paul Chan, John Giorno, Klaus Biesenbach, Tom Stromberg, Alice Wilke, Ines Goldbach, Poka-Yio and Chus Martinez.
I was born in North Vancouver Canada and am a citizen of Canada, the United States and Switzerland. I am currently based in Basel Switzerland.
Inspired by the archetypes of the alchemist and the fool, I explore the opposites of knowing and not knowing as intelligent absurd naiveté. I write poems in words, performances and visual art that play between the simpleton-jester-clown and the disciplined practitioner of The Great Work.
This work includes words, 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.
