The museum acts as the institutionalised collection; objects are ordered to the curator’s particular criteria forming arrays, patterns and logical systems. I become interested when there is a sense of another, more eccentric order, at work.

My practice engages with the artefact, it’s place within a collection and the context created by the assembly of these groups of objects. Through the creation, arrangement and manipulation of these artefacts I hope to create the sense of a jumbled folk museum or a personal curio collection. By drawing influence from a wide range of cultural sources, ranging from modern to ancient, each sculptural art work becomes something that shrugs off it’s initial reading and demands a second take. This is achieved take through the use of anachronistic and disparate visual cues or from the context that is generated by its placement within the assemblage as a whole.
