About

I am Associate Professor and Head of Arts Research.

Since 2017 I have been a member of Contemporary Visual Arts Network East Midlands (CVAN EM) Steering Group, and from 2018 an Executive Board member of the Society for Artistic Research (SAR). I peer review for Project Anywhere global exhibition programme (University of Melbourne).

I gained a PhD from Middlesex University and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. I work as an External Examiner to the undergraduate programmes in Fine Art at Oxford Brookes University, Solihull College and University of the Creative Arts: Farnham (theory), and to MA Fine Art at De Montfort University.

Research interests

I work as an artist and artistic researcher. My research focuses on documentation as an act of ephemeral art process, and with animality and empathy (as acted and/or intuitively behaved) in human-animal companion-species relationships. These subjects are analysed through live art, video, sculpture and published texts. 

The research with companion species is specifically with dogs (and more recently horses and cats) and the critical and social contexts in which they have relevance. I lead the research project The Alternative Document (since 2015), which includes exhibition, published texts and symposia. This project interrogates and seeks appropriate strategies for the legacies of experiential and transient art practice.
