Like Descartes, only with four jobs! A contemporary art Steve Martin that literally nobody asked for!
Writer/artist. I like sambal and 90s supermodels.
Excavate: The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall is published by Faber on April 1, 2021. Don’t listen to me, listen to David Peace: “To 50,000 Fall Fans: please buy this inspired & inspiring, profound & provocative, beautiful & bonkers Book of Revelations, choc-stock-full of loving Acts by true Apostles, simultaneously both the scrapbook you wished you’d kept and a portal to futures & pasts, known & unknown, & a Fantastic Celebration of this Nation’s Saving Grace.” Fall Heads?

I’ve given readings, and contributed to exhibitions and events at Liverpool Biennial, The Tetley, Wysing Arts Centre, SPACE and more. I am, as far as I know, the only person to have hosted Wayne’s World at Flat Time House. My writing has appeared in various publications including Tribune and The Wire. I am a Jerwood Arts / FACT Digital Fellow in 2020-21, working with FACT gallery on a new film and essay commission. Following a residency at Wysing Arts Centre, I produced an artist’s publication called The Fields Here Are Full of Ghosts, which you can buy as an edition on Wysing Polyphonic here.
