She is best know for her video installations, for which she recently received the Max Mara Art Prize for Women. Recent exhibitions include Frieze Art Fair, for which a set of idiosyncratic signs were placed throughout the fair, with statements such as behind this wall 15 cows are kept quiet and ideally this sign would take you in its arms. She has also shown at MOT International, London; Tate Britain, London; After the Butcher, Berlin; and Lighthouse, Brighton.
