Les Bijoux Indiscrets, or, Paper Tigers (2017)


I am an artist working with language on the page, in performances, installations, videos, and through translation and research. I am the author of Meat (2015), Fantasias in Counting (2014), and 12 Steps (2012), and the translator of Uljana Wolf’s Subsisters: Selected Poems (2017) and i mean i dislike that fate that i was made to where (2015). My performance piece Les Bijoux Indiscrets, or, Paper Tigers was presented at La MaMa Galleria in New York in March 2017, and most recently at Bold Tendencies in Peckham in September 2017. I recently co-founded the multi-media and multi-genre performance collective GORGONIA. My new performance and installation Emilia Galotti’s Colouring Book of Feelings has been selected for Art Night London (7 Jul 2018) and will be presented at the Bargehouse/Oxo Tower. Follow me on Instagram.


I am currently a Junior Research Fellow at Queens’ College, University of Cambridge, finishing my first scholarly book, Provisional Avant-Gardes: Little Magazine Communities from Dada to Digital, forthcoming from Stanford University Press in 2019. My research interests include twentieth- and twenty-first-century avant-garde writing, performance, video and mixed-media art; transhistorical print and publishing culture; aesthetics; queer-feminist theory; translation and multi-lingual writing.
