In her practice writing, sculpture, performance and video come together in narratives of the encounter between people and a disruptive material setting in which objects express feelings, ill-humour and dissatisfaction with their functional roles. Thus we find both objects and individuals refusing to cooperate with each other, a situation that leads other characters to consider the consequences of this rejection of tacit collaboration. Actors then engage with impetuosity in inquiring how, what and of whom are they made of.
