The Lost Ones follows a disparate group of individuals who are waiting to have their residency status assessed. They are people in limbo – whose personal circumstances or economic situations have been suddenly re-evaluated and whose future status now seems conditional on a test that they need to pass.

Recent presentations include GIVE GOOD, Twentyone, Southend (2018), The Jump Room, The Old Waterworks, Southend (2017), Jerwood Staging Series, Jerwood Arts, London (2017), Corrupt Blood Incident, South Kiosk, London. His book The Jump Room was published by The Old Waterworks in 2018. He is a member of the National Executive Committee for Artists’ Union England.

She was previously a Curator at Witte de With Centre for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam (2014-18) and Assistant Curator for the Marrakech Biennale (2012-14).
