SYDNEY - A HYPERPRODUCTIVE CITY
Soft Stir Magazine - Issue #1 2020
I spent much of my time writing this essay reflecting on my years as an athlete, understanding my body through the squinted eye of the biomedical model, understanding this model as a product of our broader political structure, and understanding it as a jockstrap for this patriarchal city. With the leftover hole of negative space, it hopefully draws out the silhouette of the anti-capitalist body. The rest of that silhouette is filled in with my after athlete explorations of gender, body diversity and disability.

Yeah Nah Yeah 2018
The floor is covered in stilettos, feet braced in the forever point of ballerina. There are ironed out colours, shirts and shoulders stiffened against gravity, then there is us, smeared lipstick, rash vests and a curiousity for the cultural modified body. This peice is an investagative reflection of a public performance artwork, entering the Ivy Pool Club, a venue of Sydney’s florid nightlife.
