Observed human incidents often form the starting point for my work. I combine these real events with fictitious narratives to produce video, installation and performance. By constructing and imagining scenarios – often making use of the category of the absurd – I look to investigate social structures and the political subtext of the everyday, focusing on affects and emotions, labor and the body.
