Zero Hour Residency We Belong Here Banner

Zero Hour Residency – A virtual residency in a time of social distancing.

I’m so excited to be taking part in Zero Hour, the newest project by arts group ‘We Belong Here’. Zero Hour is a collaborative transdisciplinary online residency; bringing together artists and performers to create a new body of work.

For this residency, I have been partnered with dancer and coder Wendy Yu. Yu is currently working and researching in Berlin. Our collaborative project will investigate ‘touch’ and the physicality of the body.

Artistic and Autistic An Exhibition at King’s College London (Postponed due to COVID-19)

Artistic and Autistic is an exhibition of work by autistic artists and explores what Autism means to them. As the exhibition has been postponed I have decided to showcase details of the prints ‘The Space Separating’ rather than the full images.

I gained a formal diagnosis in 2016 after receiving counselling in response to stress. I soon realised that the stress and anxiety I was feeling was provoked by having an ‘atypical neurology’ or ‘different’ brain function in a ‘neurotypical’ world.

Living Photography. What does the word living mean to you?

Living Photography is to be in a constant state of change. To be in motion. Nothing that is living is ever truly still. We breathe, our hearts beat, we move from place to place. Nothing alive is ever truly still. These images are taken in transition, moving between places and states of mind.

Living Photography opens on Wednesday 4th December at the Brunswick Leeds.

Being Human Festival

A Deep (Subjective) Ache, Being Human Festival Re-Humanising Medicine, Contact

‘Humanising Medicine’ – an exhibition at Bart’s Pathology Museum.

Queen Mary’s University of London and King’s College London have collaborated to bring an exciting exhibition ‘Humanising Medicine’ to Bart’s Pathology Museum.  This evening of art and talks is part of the Being Human Festival and I am so pleased to be showing three new works.

This year the theme of Being Human Festival is ‘Discoveries and Secrets’. However, Queen Mary’s and King’s College have taken this overarching theme one step further with a more intimate narrative – ‘This Time it’s Personal’. I think this is an apt lens to explore modern medicine through. If I have learned anything through my recent experiences being interviewed for BBC Radio 4’s ‘D for Diagnosis‘, and taking part in research with King’s College, the days of broad overarching diagnosis and sweeping statements are coming to an end – medicine and science are becoming personal.
