My work is often focused around the body and finding its most authentic form - whatever that may be. I have an interest in finding those parts of ourselves that we try our hardest to hide from the outside world, staying with them and teasing them outwards and exploring the fight between the body and the mind that occurs when we lose the control that we have when it comes to keeping these parts hidden. It is these parts of ourselves, whether that be words, thoughts/feelings or even parts of physical body, that we try to hide, coming out and contaminating the cleanliness of the outside. Are our authentic, most inner parts of ourselves dirty?
