Statement

In my video works, I am interested in the depiction of ordinariness and the unexpected in the everyday, which allows me to look at the multiplicity, diversity and ambiguity of the urban experience. The works often employ a voyeuristic approach, exposing the boundaries of urban life that lie between the private and the public, and the spaces where they intersect. Often these spaces act as borders: no-man's land. Many of the videos are filmed at night, when these spaces are redefined, creating a sense of dislocation. Entanglement is a multiple screens video installation of police helicopters with searchlights hovering at night in East London. In this installation I am reconfiguring a piece of reality and representing it in a new context, multiplying the experience of bewilderment and 'entanglement'.
