devotions is the collective title of a series of works exploring the divinatory potential of performance ...  I wait for the edges of my vision to begin shimmering, for desires and impulses and ideas to present themselves like spirits to be channelled. This is different to trance in that trance presupposes a loss of control whereas channelling is a process of conscious and unconscious decision making.


from devotion : text (2020)


These works may take a multitude of forms, through short actions, durational works, text and image making. The devotions were activated in Venice at the start of the new decade.
