Bio

Taking place

Its clear that you will never find what you are looking for here.
But don’t distant yourself… because I need you. I need you present. I need your attention, your body, your voice. The space between us, or shall I say between Us and the Work, is in itself the on-going place that we need, together to reconstruct, to find.
A place. To sustain a place
A body. To find a body
A word. To find a voice
There is silence as there is distortion. Inaudible. But here.
Each poem, some of them cut open, on the page of each drawing have a phosphorescent light. Emanating, calling you to enter.
Some words we will find written inverted as to include you within an incarnated poetry.
To see differently.
What Happens?
