Artist’s Statement: Through printmaking, installation, time-based media and participatory projects, my work interweaves queer and ecological dialogues to re-examine social and environmental histories. I stage inter-species exchanges in order to interrupt, disassemble and then build anew ideas of humanness, queerness and animality. In “The Lodge”, queer wrestlers inhabit a beaver lodge to suggest potential cross-species alliances – allegiances that may lead to liberation from oppressive codes of heteronormative society.
