is a New Zealand-born artist, based in Rotterdam. She works primarily in sculpture and performance, with ongoing projects in sound/ broadcast and print/publishing as alternative modes of collaboration and distribution. Her recent work is concerned with the speaking voice as tool for finding and making public space. She is interested in the way the voice operates the distinction between private and public, being the hinge between the physical material of the body, and the social fabric of language. She is especially sensitive to gendered characterizations of the speaking body, and how inherited power dynamics are written into built space: where and how we speak.

is Scottish artist living in the Netherlands. Over the past several years she has worked in film, animation, drawing and text, with an emphasis on how, on what grounds and by which means to establish a critical relationship to phenomena. Recently, her work has focused upon the speech acts of promise and transmission in relation to the sharing of knowledge, developing how the use of suspension, resistance and reveal generates a flow that pulls the listener towards an expectation and holds an audience’s attention.
