Artistic Practice
Artistic projects and documentation

Listed on the right is a chronology of public presentations of my artistic work over the past 15 years.

My work has often combined elements of performance and visual art. I have an ongoing interest in drawing, photography and the use of projection in a performative environment.

My most recent project was to establish a performance art group called 'Hollywood Leather'. The group was founded in Berlin in May 2004 and currently has two other members: Florian Feigl and Ellen Friis.

For more information about past and future projects from Hollywood Leather, see www.liveartwork.com/hollywoodleather

I am also engaged in an ongoing 'research' project - the Performance Art Directory. This is an online information resource that lists information on international venues, festivals, artists and funders that are, one way or the other, engaged in or support the practice of performance and live art.
