In December 2018, she co-founded trans-, a curatorial collective that establishes a framework for critical thinking, research and exhibition-making by working with artists whose practice questions the impact of the globalisation and semio-capitalism on the social body. They’ve curated activations and exhibitions at South London Gallery, Flat Time House and The Koppel Project in London.
