About me
I'm a London-based writer, researcher and curator. I am completing an MA in Forensic Architecture 2017-18 at Goldsmiths, University of London. My dissertation project, titled The Black (D)rift, is an ongoing curatorial and research project exploring the spatial dynamics of black interiority, objecthood, and affect through encounters with particular sites, geographies and temporalities of the afterlives of slavery. My practice works with prose, poetry, orality and performance and I am interested in how Blackness moves through space and time. Recent curatorial projects include the group show (BUT) WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT WHITE SUPREMACY? co-curated with Rabz Lansiquot. Many Studios commissioned sorryyoufeeluncomfortable Collective as part of their Glasgow International 2018 programming.
