I have received her BA degree from Wimbledon College of the Arts in London in 2013. I work mainly with video installations and ready mad materials. My videos are quasi narrative stories of ‘the choreography of everyday life’. For me there is nothing more hypnotising or more exciting than the banality of everyday life. The eternal return to sameness that restores everything through a southing repetition. People respond to this sequence of passing days through adapting small rituals that break down time into a manageable quantity.
I believe that this routinised behaviour such as dressing up , brushing hair, tying up shoelaces, walking , have something to do with art. Or as Allan Kaprow says in ‘Art that can’t be art’ : ‘Ordinary life performed as art/not art can charge the everyday with metaphoric power’.
I do not want to simply dislocate the everyday, I want to choreograph it, force it, reenact it.Like learning an action all over again. I want to put the everyday on stage and synchronise the movements to music, or to direct a painfully wrong performance of it.
I think that these moments have something to do with art, if someone looks for it. But, I don’t know, I am just looking for the mouse at the back of the room that is not there…
