Screening — 26 Apr 2010

I’ll be showing Misrecognition and SplitFlip as part of As We Speak, a Glasgow International 2010 event.

Come down to Stereo (Renfield Lane) on Wednesday 28 April at 8pm to see them and other wondeful experimental videos and moving image artworks.

So as my other show closes, new works appear in the city. Who said I never exhibit in Glasgow?

Marcel Duchamp and the Forestay waterfall — 25 Apr 2010

Forestay Waterfall

Forestay Waterfall, which inspired Etant Donnes

Isn’t this the most wonderfully obscure symposium ever? I wish I could go – alas, I will be at another very obscure one, Jacques Lacan Today at UCL, in London. This is one of those event when one is guaranteed to share interests with the rest of the attendees. I should write to the Catalonian authorities of the place where Duchamp found the Spanish door to encourage them to make a rival symposium…

About Me

I am an artist and writer. My recent practice performance, film, dance, photography and text, and my work has been performed, exhibited and published in many venues in Europe and the US. I have spoken at numerous conferences and events, including the Museum for the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, the Medical Museum in Copenhagen, College Arts Association and the Association for the Psychoanalysis of Culture and Society. When I am not following Freud, Lacan and Marx’s footsteps with my camera or creating performance works as part of my Athenaeum Research Fellowship at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, I teach postgraduate students at Transart Institute.

I am currently immersed in an interdisciplinary project exploring knowledge and the body of the hysteric. In 2013, together with Child and Adolescent Mental Health practitioner Frances Davies, I co-edited the book ‘Madness, Women and the Power of Art’, to which I contributed a work authored with Eleanor Bowen. My book ‘Make Me Yours: How Art Seduces’ was published by Cambridge Scholars in 2016. In this text, investigates psychoanalytic approaches to making and understanding objects of seduction, including an examination of parallels between artistic and analytic practices, a study of Manolo Blahnik’s shoes as objects of desire, a disturbing encounter with Marcel Duchamp’s last work, and the creation of a psychoanalytically inspired Discourse of the Artefact, a framework enabling the circulation of questions and answers through a relational approach to artworks.
