“I’ve always had an affinity with language, spoken or written. Over time, I have repeatedly questioned how language makes and shapes the world we live in. Perhaps the thing that I have done longest (even before ‘being an artist’) is to collect language; writing down fragments that I have read, heard, seen or imagined. Whatever context I am working in – whether it is performance, art, dance or written publications – it seems as though text always gets in there. In one way or another, text feels central to who I am and how I am in the world.”
