I studied Fine Art at Newcastle, and Photography in the class of Dieter Appelt at the Hochschule der Kunste, Berlin. National and international grants and fellowships have enabled me to research and make work abroad, including Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD), Berlin, Leverhulme Trust, Norway, Japan Foundation, Tokyo, and Arts and Humanities Research Council and Arts Council England in the UK.

Initially working within a fine art context, my work was included in exhibitions at The Photographers’ Gallery, London, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and England & Co in the UK, and various galleries in Germany and Scandinavia. More recently I have focused on curating, photography and writing. I have been involved in an extensive body of work looking at the collaborative processes involved in the recording of performance. This work has been published with Tate Liverpool in Arts, Lies and Videotape: Exposing Performance; Artwords Press On Record: Advertising, architecture and the actions of Gina Pane; and John Hansard Gallery, Live Art on Camera. I am currently working on a new exhibition for John Hansard Gallery, 'Anti Academy', which opens in November 2013 and which examines the activities of three experiments in art education in the 1960s in Tokyo, Copenhagen and Iowa City, USA.  

I was Photography Research Fellow and Lecturer at Winchester School of Art from 1995 to 1999, Senior Lecturer in BA and MA Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University from 1999 to 2007 and Course Director of BA Photography at Kingston University from 2007 to 2011. I have been Photography Programme Leader at Falmouth University since 2011.

Research interests

Research interests and expertise

I am particularly interested in the ways in which artists who work with ‘ephemeral’ practices (such as performance, installation, time-based works, site-specific work) navigate those processes via which their work is recorded, published, disseminated, sold.   

Coming from a background in Fine Art and Photography I have recently also focused on Curating and Writing.

In the past ten years I have carried out two major research investigations stemming from this starting point: one looks at the collaborative processes via which such ‘live’ or ephemeral practices are recorded with photography, sound and film. Most recently I have looked at the ways in which artists working with ‘non object’ oriented or ‘ephemerally based practices’ develop workshops or teaching, and the student experience of these events and processes.  

In both of these strands of research I have extensively interviewed practitioners about the processes through which their work has navigated the systems of curating, publishing and sales within the trajectories of their careers and I have excavated the archives of photographers and film-makers who recorded seminal performances to examine how their approach or ‘photographic style’ has become fused and embedded within the language of the practice or practitioner who is recorded.
