‘The residency extends my understanding of reading as a performative act
and of how making sense of the world through language can fall into absurdity.
Working with Eileen and Jeremy I have been able to gain a greater critical
distance to my work. The unbiased feedback offered by Akerman Daly is that
of an editor and an artist working naturally together. Since starting the residency
I have performed in new contexts, including salons and book launches;
the residency has also led to a new video work made in collaboration between
Akerman Daly, Paul Abbott and myself.’
