Krystle Patel

I use writing, sound and textile to create moving image works and site-specific installations that interrogate the construction and value of relationships through language. My practice exists in time and is intentionally slippery and evasive. Research forms the basis of my process relying on experimentation, intuition and conversation. I am interested in language, where it is full and where it is empty, its most abstract and literal forms, language as alive and with limitations.
