Artist Statement

In my practice, the sentient body is seen as the main medium for perceiving and presenting (versus representing) meaning (versus message) through direct personal experience. Engaging vigorously with the present reality of all that is here-and-now, the meaning of my context-specific works often manifest in the resonant relationships created between myself and my audience, and between the audience themselves. My current research looks at the connection between experiential knowledge and the innate human capacity for empathy, in relation to a genre performance art I call “gutty”. This gutty form of performance art which uses the body just as it is – as vulnerable/resilient/sensitive as it is in everyday life – relies heavily on empathy to create meaning that is not merely conceptual but also affective and visceral. In other words, I look at why some performances not only tickle our brains but also quite literally leave us feeling like we’ve been punched in the gut.
