Using sincere parody, I bring individual meaning to tired tropes and ask audiences to question authenticity in order to generate new ways of seeing, hearing, and experiencing personal, social, and historical events. Creating parallel planes is achieved through unapologetic appropriation of signifiers such as institutional voice and stock images, sociological and archival inquiry, pedagogical techniques such as socio-dramatic play, and temporal juxtaposition. Recent performances at venues including: The Corcoran Gallery of Art, Hillyer Art Space, The Back Alley Theater, and other DIY venues in D.C., as well as The Leslie – Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in Manhattan, Panoply in Brooklyn, and The Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston.
