Artist’s statement

Me, myself & I is a documented performance exploring fluid interactions between multiple (inconsistent & ambivalent) selves. Constantly juggling & balancing, I examine how the persona & ego are impacted upon by the external environment continually shaping & modifying the self. Theoretical metaphors including the notions of I.D., ego & superego as 'parts’ of the self with differentiated functions are alluded to by my split selves, my bravado & by the inflated & deflated balloons that suggest my fluctuating confidence & sense of self.
