My work subjectively presents queer narratives, exploring personal and collective relationships to work, nature, institutions and the state, and thinks around provinciality.
In “Coat of Arms” (2016), my friend L tattoos the four symbols of the Glasgow coat of arms onto my arm in his flat.
In “Rubber Phallus” (2016), 4 friends recite an edited transcript of a conversation, recounting a trip to the Isle of Skye on the eve of the Brexit vote – discussing bodies, gender and landscape, performing queer selves in rural environments, and communally processing traumatic experiences. Meanwhile, an offscreen anal penetration/ejection with a pink dildo takes place repeatedly, as a still life is built and disassembled from nostalgic objects.
I have exhibited at the Duchy and Market Gallery, Glasgow, and Embassy, Edinburgh, and performed at Buzzcut and Paraphernalia, Glasgow. I was a visiting lecturer at Leeds College of Art in 2012. I served on the Transmission committee in 2016-17.
