Working with actors, she explores character, behavior, motivation, relationships, group dynamics, and social constructs, while foregrounding the codes of acting and performance.

Performances include Art Basel Miami, Park Avenue Armory and Salon 94, NYC. Selected group exhibitions include Whitechapel, London; SMAK, Ghent, Belgium; Biennale de Lyon, France; MoMA, NYC.
