Director Statement

Growing up in East London, I’ve spent a lot of time exploring small galleries and often wondered about the artists behind the pieces. Are they friends, rivals, maybe lovers?

This was the starting point for Pineapple, a film about the balance of power in relationships, set to the backdrop of the art world.
