part time designer and director, full time kumiho

they + she


hyperfocused movements of a particular upheaval, an ongoing irruption
that re-arranges every assumption of the equivalence of subjectivity and identity.

work focused around apotheosis, folk storytelling, the dematerialization of the body, deep fantasy, personal mythologies, the revolution of crisis, creating demi-god through the written word and the embracing de-weaponizing our identities and alchemizing intimacy.
