As a performance artist I reconceptualise notions of self through the objectification of my body in space or environments. In this work I plan to use the deconstructed body as a system of conversing with oneself, asking oneself questions in relation to the theme of change and realigning concepts of change of self in relation to gender and the body politic; the body in relation to culture and society.Although an image maker, the experience for me lies in the act of performing. The body becomes the shared event, a piece of art in perpetual flux.
