For nearly a decade I've been contributing reviews, interviews and essays to arts and cultural publications. I write about contemporary art, books, films and digital culture.
Here are some of my favourites.
On 'Animals', messiness and vulnerability
I reviewed Sophie Hyde's 2019 film 'Animals' for Vague Visages. I wrote about the self-destructive female and how humour acts as emotional defence.
My exhibition reviews for contemporary art publication thisistomorrow cover emerging and established artists such as Dean Kenning at Matt's Gallery, Sung Tieu at Nottingham Contemporary, Pavel Pepperstein in Moscow and David Lynch at Manchester International Festival.
Bodies in spaces: On Chantal Akerman's My Mother Laughs
"Periphery figures move in and out of the text’s field of vision. We glimpse them out of the corner of our eye as they perform the duties of care."
My features and reviews for Corridor8, which takes a critical look at contemporary art in the North of England. Including: Ben Jeans Houghton, Yorkshire Art Space, Daria Martin and more.
Our Favourite Places
For several years I was a contributor to Sheffield cultural guide Our Favourite Places. I had a lot of fun writing about the art, music, food and drink I loved in the city.
Through Lines: On Wanye Koestenbaum's "Figure It Out"
For The Cleveland Review of Books I wrote about argument, deviation and the flirtatious essay in Wayne Koestenbaum's latest collection.
