As an artist who identifies as non-binary, my current practice revolves around producing work of a personal nature, exploring the notion of the Self as Other, and featuring my female persona. How can I proceed from an individual reality to a shared reality that can be better understood by all? The main purpose of my work is to make a philosophical inquiry into the reality of a non-binary being, using performance as a mimesis of that being, in an attempt to break the barrier of personal subjectivity. My current lines of research involve readings of history, mythology, literature and liminal performance art to express, explore and de-mystify my own inner being, as well as her relationship to the outer world and the others who inhabit it, mainly through the medium of video.
