Biography

b. 1996

Within my practice I aim to understand and analyse the fads of certain time periods. In the past this interest has led me to create works about pop star memorabilia and collectible plates amongst others. With 'Offer (216)' I have been investigating sticker albums (such as those produced by PANINI) and the amount of time and money we spend on these in an attempt to complete them.

The work aims to bring attention to online trading websites that specialise in sticker collection wherein it is necessary to obtain an insane backlog of stickers that you personally do not need in order to successfully trade with those that do. The idea is that this will eventually lead to a completed album. I have been working on completing one album for 13 months. This has led me to a stalemate situation. The last 4 stickers I need seem impossible to find, however my backlog of stickers keep growing, hence 'Offer (126)' which details every single sticker I own that I do not need.

Ultimately this work is highlighting a very specific community who spend unfathomable amounts of time and money to complete a paper booklet that only costs pennies to produce.
