A recent commission for the Gallery of Modern Art,Glasgow has been acquired by the museum with support from a grant from the National Fund for Acquisitions. It’s currently on view as part the exhibition, Domestic Bliss.

Empire of Love (2020) is a series of six Zippo® lighters engraved with text in key Scottish writing against the abolition of slavery, and a design informed by research into this history. Of particular reference was, James Boswell’s 1791 poem ‘No Abolition of Slavery, or the Universal Empire of Love’.

Recipient of Market Gallery’s 2020 Studio Projects HOME Residency to develop a project reflecting on ‘pining’. I will use the month of September to work on a film about heartbreak, nostalgia and the false imaginings of a country — a work of still and moving image held together by an anxious narrator. Mad, oblique and unreliable, pining for something liveable.
