Her curatorial and research interests revolve around materiality & material cultures; affect & embodiment; weaving & textile histories. Her curatorial practice has previously been concerned with the relationship between affect and bodies, the agency of objects, notions of hybridity, transformations and transmutations in alternative futures, and the phenomenological experience of seeing, encountering, and believing.
