The film was premiered at Late at Tate Britain Online* on December 15, 2020 along with the films of students from the Chelsea College of Arts.

" To coincide with Turner’s Modern World exhibition, December’s Late at Tate Britain Online will premiere films made by Fine Art students at Chelsea College of Arts responding to the question;  How do we engage with the landscape around us today? 

This project was initiated by Martin Newth (Fine Art Programme Director at Chelsea College of Arts). His film essay, ‘Constructing Landscapes/Building Worlds’, was the starting point for the project. It was made with the support of the Portland Sculpture and Quarry Trust and Hannah Sofaer for assistance with locations on Portland and access to a Living Land Archive, recorded and collated over 35 years during an unprecedented time of environmental and technological change.

The project connects landscape to Tate via a drawing by Turner, which features the limestone quarries on the Isle of Portland in Dorset. Portland stone was mined and provided the raw material for the boom in construction of the Industrial Revolution and was used to build Tate Britain. "



Free Wilk

Performers projected a video from projectors attached on the height of their genitals, dressed up in costumes influenced by animals that symbolise bisexuality in the christian religion, such as the hare and the hyena. The video shows scenes from ‘Nu pogodi’ (Well, Just You Wait!) , a sexually controversial soviet cartoon alongside quotes quotes from the Epistle of Barnabas on animals in relation to christian diet and sexuality. The performers were projecting the video on every surface of the lecture hall, including the visitors, during an artist talk and panel discussion. 'Free Wilk' took place in Katowice, Poland as part of the 3rd Parallax Art Forum 'Stereotypes and Storytelling'.
Panel discussion in collaboration with: Rosie Dahlstrom and Veera Rustomji

Pom-Pom-Critique

A group of eight cheerleaders, one for each letter of my name, arrived in Chelsea College of Arts during the opening of the 2018 Degree Show, cheered my name amongst ‘famous Chelsea alumni’ names and other marketing quotes, mentioned in the university’s website, and danced choreographies on famous pop songs. After 4 hours of delirious cheering, the cheerleaders left the campus.

Μuscletopia for two

Audio, 20:04 min.
Photography, poster, variable dimensions.

In 2017, a poster by the title ‘Strong Girls Wanted’ was distributed around London gyms and random people on the street, as part of a wider research of representations of strength and beauty. Amongst other interviewees, Kuka and Lucie two bodybuilders and sisters responded to my call and invited me to take documentation during their morning training at the gym. 'Muscletopia for two' is a project that portrays the personal experience of Kuka and Lucie, two bodybuilding athletes, sisters and partners in both alcohol addiction and sobriety, in terms of beauty standards, the stereotypes of femininity and masculinity, beauty and daily life.
