She will be graduating from Central Saint Martins this summer and so far
she has exhibited at Ugly Duck, Tate Exchange, Apiary Studios,
Seventeen and Lethaby Gallery.
Her work investigates the value of the female body in an
hyperconnected and commodified society and how this contradicts a
well established feminist agenda.
Using her body as an art object she allows herself to become the

and deficiencies of its work. Labelled as ‘post’, it also suggest that
feminist theories are no longer relevant as equality, amongst other
rights, has been achieved.
But what if equality wasn’t the final destination?
