In her practice, she is interested in experimental approaches to knowledge production, exploring new curatorial methods and imagining new forms, whether for exhibitions, collections or institutions.  Collaboration influences her thinking, drawing on the wealth of knowledge and approaches collectives have offered us historically. Her current research looks to what queerness as a mode of being in the world offers and incites a critical and generative space for knowledge production and possibilities of radical futures.  Notable recent projects include: Territories Between Us, Iziko SANG (2021); it is a gathering of the elders with George Hallett, Michaelis Gallery (2022); - and counting (2019) Johannesburg Art Gallery.
