Mark

Billy (b. London, UK), works across text, performance and video. 
      The estrangement of established frameworks -- linguistic, relational, [folk] social, familial, erotic, algorithmic, territorial, historical -- becomes an embodied queer politic.
      Language, as a conveyor of meaning, power and old tongues, is never far from thought.
