I use art and crafts to create a visual language of radical political movements. Images from differing times and geographies are sliced and woven together, becoming both image and pattern, map and archive.
My present work investigates the history of textile industries, and the emergence of early socialist movements. Drawing on the practice of mee-mawing, a secret language used by textile workers who combined mime and sign language, I have developed a choreography for radical weavers, wherein working bodies speak through movement and entanglement.
As part of my practice, I´m also a founding member of the Sunshine Socialist Cinema, a solar powered outdoors cinema which screens art videos to provoke debate on the coming together of leftism and environmentalism.
