Artist Statement
In my video, sound, and photography-based practice, I approach each project through a research process. Often starting with historical events, I attempt to examine how knowledge is understood through methods of translation, performance, and representation. My projects underscore the ideological underpinnings of historical narratives and raise questions about the elision and repression of the present moment in the service of the past. Often incorporating appropriated sound, image, and text, my work examines the precarious equilibrium between image and concept, word and meaning. I use archival material as a point of departure for exploring the politics of representation and the construction of difference and subjectivity in relation to history, time, and memory.
