I followed you into the forest
Finding you in the snap of a branch
Which you were later to tell me was an Aspen Tree
I felt the weight of your hand
And the absence of warmth
And watched as the clouds changed behind your head
The green in your eyes so alive
You and Nick Caves Black, Black Hair, explores the notion of Relationship Anarchy. Connected to polyamory and non-monogamy, Relationship Anarchy distinguishes itself by proposing that there need not be a formal distinction between sexual, romantic, or platonic relationships.
Orienting my practice within the personal, this work emphasises gender and sexual fluidity, and confronts representational norms within relationship structures. Through documenting intimate moments between friends and lovers, the ritualisation of attending to connection is materialised. Desire is manifested through portraits and symbolic references to togetherness and separation as well as love and sadness.
