Arc-en-ciel forms part of the Arctic Circle Project, a meditation on the Arctic as both a real and imaginary place.
My practice is autobiographical and multi-disciplinary. I’m drawn to the imperfect, the work as an ongoing process, a form of research, a story. The materials I use tend to be ephemeral, reflecting the subject matter. I’ve presented and exhibited work in galleries and museums in Europe, N. America and China and participated in international residencies at The Arctic Circle, Banff Centre for the Arts, Stiftelsen Kulturhuset USF, Artist Residency in Motherhood and the Santa Fe Art Institute for which I was awarded a Joan Mitchell Foundation grant. My monograph, published with Peter Lang Oxford, entitled Women Writing War: The Life-writing of the Algerian moudjahidate, is part of the series, Studies in Contemporary Women’s Writing, edited by Gill Rye, Professor Emeritus at the IMLR, School of Advanced Study, University of London, UK. From 2013 to 2014 I was a Fellow in Multi-Disciplinary Research at the Adrian Piper Research Archive Foundation (APRAF) in Berlin, DE.
Originally from southeastern Massachusetts (b. 1973), I live with my partner and our son in Lyon, France.
