I’ve started to post longer thoughts than those I would normally have uploaded to Instagram Stories. I think of them as a sort of audio sketchbook, a record of my thinking process that I hope you find useful.
Fear of flesh
Fear of female flesh
Fear of fantasising about female flesh
Framing fantasies fantasising about female flesh
Focussing fantasies fantasising about female flesh frameworks
Focussing on fucking Freud: does he fantasise about female flesh?
Fantasising about Foucault and Freud is forbidden!
Father father! I have no issue with my father!
Funny fannies are frightening
Funny fanny fiddle
It is a huge pleasure to see a research paper on my artist book Conversations with my mother now published by Tate. The direct link is here . Art historian and curator Jennifer Mundy has written a beautiful paper about this work which is part of their collection, and available to view at the library in Tate Britain.
It is finally done – the first piece of hand-embroidery completed for part of the Royal School of Needlework certificate, thanks to the QEST scholarship. It’s taken over 100 hours – and I love it! This now informs future embroidery application within my broader contemporary photographic practice.
Looking forward to showing my unique works from Constellations and Coordinates with The Photographers’ Gallery at Photo London this May. All colour works are hand-embroidered – I add each thread as individual stitches into small, analogue c-types. They will be showing alongside Meghann Riepenhoff, Vasantha Yogananthan and Chris Steele-Perkins from May 16-19 at Somerset House, London.
