Artists' Statement
I was born in South East London in 1966. I studied Theatre Design at Trent Polytechnic in Nottingham between 1986-89. In 2001 I received an Artsadmin Artists' Bursary to develop my own work. I was subsequently commissioned to make Unfallen by the Arnolfini in Bristol with the first performance in February 2003 and further performances in Manchester, Gent, Helsinki, Frankfurt, Sydney, Perth and Berlin. This performance-lecture investigates personal history through accidents and the process of the projection of one city onto another. In 2001 I began to collaborate with my partner Sophia New, under the name plan b.
My work crosses a number of disciplines: performance, psychogeography, locative media, video and fine art. Since April 2003 I have recorded every journey I have made with a GPS. This year I have been made a member of the Junge Akademie at the Akademie der Künste in Berlin.
I am fascinated by the idea that locations (interior or exterior) serve as a mnemonic for the stories that we tell about our lives and often work to reveal these human narratives (my own and other peoples') bound to a place.
