Ann Hamilton, an installation artist, talks of the the longing to animate, and the longing and inability of ever being absorbed. I find whatever I make wants to come alive and move. I want to be the one to get inside it or manipulate and make movement in some way. To be both subject and object.
I am interested in the façades and tools created by civilisation and etiquette that attempt to sublimate the more barbarous side of human nature and how this succeeds and fails across gender and class.
As an artist I feel my job is a constant and consistent play of contradictions.
