Parisians Love to Speak English is a new site specific sound installation for the Diep- Haven cross channel contemporary arts festival. Part of my Public Address series , this series of announcements on the ferry’s tannoy system playfully explores anglo-french perceptions of each other, inviting listeners to consider how we, the public, assume and transfer knowledge of other cultures.
The work will be presented on on the 19th August 2014.
My solo show, The Current Situation is on until the 7th September 2015. There are 5 newly commissioned artworks at the New Art Exchange in Nottingham, and the show will be on from the 10th May – 7th September 2014

At the heart of the exhibition is my newly commissioned interactive artwork The Current Situation, which is a giant adaptation of a ‘buzz wire’ game subverted into the form of a world map. Visitors to the gallery are invited to navigate around global borders with a hand held device, attempting to avoid activating an electric charge. Some territories are more difficult to navigate than others, examining notions around the establishment of borders, the division of land and expansion of empires. You can read more here.
The Pub Quiz on the 20th of May was lots of fun. Thanks to all who turned up.
