artist statement:

My practice is about fear, blood and spit--the susurration of gain and loss beyond language. I'm afraid we'll lose the old stories, or they'll change so much we'll forget the stink of each other. I enact rituals and tell stories using my body and the bodies of others. If stories aren't re-told and distorted, they petrify.

I steal from tradition, religious practice, and my collaborators. I get their stories wrong on purpose in order to make them right in another way. My practice involves personal intervention into the muck of inherited mythology, public actions, and volunteer and forced collaborations.
