I am a multi-disciplinary artist working mainly in performance and installation, often fueled by attempts to unravel theoretical frameworks. My work, like that of many feminist artists, is generally predicated on the body, pushing for a radical empiricism of the subject. I’m interested in discovering how remapping our conceptual frameworks of what makes an "I" can help us reclaim a sense of ethical being.
I have shown my work in New York City at La MaMa, Panoply Performance Lab, and the Culture Project, and in Maine at the Center for Maine Contemporary Art and the Steel House, among other places.
From 2013-2015 I performed and facilitated participatory exhibitions of other artists’ work at New York’s Museum of Modern Art.
I hold an MA in Performance Studies from New York University where my thesis work focused on dismantling capitalist notions of selfhood in favor of relational, affectively valued subjectivity instantiated in the body.
In 2015 I moved home to Maine and, after founding a thriving brick-and-mortar modern design shop, I am now re-building a studio practice and channeling creative energy into encouraging my toddler’s curiosity.
