Anamnesis, 2021

powder coated aluminium

installed at Canwood Gallery, Herefordshire

My Masters in Fine Art at Hereford College of Art saw me researching Trauma Theory and the nature of traumatic witnessing. Working alongside staff from Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge, I have been examining what healthcare professionals have been working through during the pandemic; the nature of their experiences and how they process them. This links to my time spent working with patients during the AIDS epidemic in 1980s London.  

My practice attempts to capture the repetitious and disrupting nature of traumatic memories.

Chaos and Order are also themes that often surface in my work alongside what can be a curatorial approach to practice.

It is a natural response to create a personal sense of order from what can be created or found from everyday items around me; a processing mechanism and a specific way of creating meaning or narrative. The use of museological reference through particular display mechanisms allows for containments and hierarchical emplacement.

The content of this ordering can become emotive; investigating inter-human relationships and personal losses.
