Regina, Saskatchewan

  • July 23, 2009 – August 18, 2009 as a resident

Originally from the UK, from a British and Mauritian family, I studied at Cardiff College of Art and under Roy Ascot at the University of Wales College Newport before moving to Canada in 1994 to pursue a MFA degree at the University of Windsor, southern Ontario. Since graduating in 1996, my works have been exhibited in solo exhibitions across Canada, including the Mendel Art Gallery, the Art Gallery of Calgary, the Art Gallery of Windsor, the Red Head Gallery, Peak Gallery and YYZ Artists Outlet in Toronto and the MacKenzie Art Gallery and Neutral Ground Gallery in Regina. I’m a past member of the Red Head Gallery in Toronto and I have participated in artists residencies at the Braziers International Artist Workshop in the UK, Trinity Square Video in Toronto, the Atlantic Centre for the Arts in Florida, the Banff Center for the Arts in Alberta, Canada and the Hungarian Multicultural Centre in Budapest. In 2000, the video installation We Are Not Who We Were was exhibited in the North American section of the 3rd Kwangju Biennale, South Korea and in 2003 Chapter Gallery in Wales hosted a large scale exhibition of my work including four video installations and two public art projects. More recently, I collaborated with New York playwright Jenny Levison on a project called Conversations for You and Me for the Experimental Text Festival at the Ontological Hysteric Theatre in New York, participated in a group exhibition at Three Walls Gallery in Chicago and was a finalist for the Sobey Art Awards in 2007. I currently live in Regina, Canada where I am an Associate Professor at the University of Regina, lead the area of Intermedia, and teach within Visual Arts and Interdisciplinary Studies. I am on sabbatical for the academic year 2008 -2009 and will be participating in residencies at Residencia Corazon in Argentina and the Canada Council Paris Studio.
