My recent practice explores the relationship between ritual, myth, ecological fragility and embodiment. Drawing on research into feminist fiction, folklore, magical rites and rituals associated with the landscape, this body of work spans sculpture, installation, video and performance. Attempting to address the entanglement of privilege, oppression and representation that accompanies Western interest in “native” or “folk” religions and cultures, the work interrogates the possible links between local mythology, global inequality and ecological disaster.
