I am a writer and artist working with text and performance. Born in Ireland, I live in the South West of England. My work uses constraints, structuring rules, and operates to cross or question category and genre divisions including around queer identity and social agency. Projects have explored the capacity, meaning and culture of the human voice, alongside the presentation and performance of self. Recent performance, radio and audio works include ‘revised dictionary supplement’ (Plymouth, Falmouth, 2022), ‘Hello! This is a test.’ for radia.fm (2021), the Constrained Radio series for Soundart Radio (2021), ‘Breath Pieces’ choreographed by Rosanna Irvine (Tramway, Glasgow, 2018); ‘telling time’ (Jamboree, Devon, 2018); ’threaded insert’ (Plymouth Art Weekender, 2017; Cardiff, 2018); ‘Breathing Line’ choreographed by Rosanna Irvine (Dance4, Nottingham, 2017); ’subject to gesture’ with Benjamin D. Duvall (Liverpool, 2017); ‘his voice’ (Plymouth, 2015; Manchester, 2016), ’flat-head self-tapping’ at Chelsea School of Art (May 2015) and ‘answering machine’ for Experimentica14 at Chapter Cardiff (Nov 2014). Artist publications include ‘9x9: a set of poems under constraint’ (ArtsandCultureExeter, 2020), ’in the key of’ (Counter Plymouth Artist Book Fair, 2015) and ‘lengths and ends: six poems for Penzance’ (CAZ Weekender, Penzance, 2012).
