'Peter et Claude: The Authentic Experience. A Celestial Drama in Two Acts.'
Malaysian bats and fertilizer - Ravenous fireflies flirting - Musicians as gods - The devouring of Nature
- Genital theft and circumcision - Creating a rebounding rubber sphere - Overdosing on Potassium -
Death by stasis - Elton John's song for a dead icon. Curtain.

In recent years my practice has been exploring issues of dependency, abandonment and subsidization in the wake of colonial rule, through writing, print, installation and video. Conflating utterances of regret, hubris and misconception, stories of convoluted quests chasing sentiments long since past are given new life through re-presentations of songs, tales and found images.

Focussing on the juncture at which historical truth becomes a lamentable untruth, my practice currently has me foraging for the exclamation that renders the sun, the moon and everything in between; and the significance of the word becoming whole.

Me tiddery idle loodle lum a da, me right fol torral addee o
Digging, digging, digging, ow di liddle doe.
