Entitled Disco Ball Soul, her debut show features work created over a ten year period. Formed from fragments from her personal diaries it is an attempt to capture time in a series of beautiful analogue photographs and collages comprising handwritten extracts capturing the artist's life as it unfolds across various geographies, including France, Arizona, Iceland and California. Much of her never-seen-before work features intimate images of her life with her husband, Josh (the musician Father John Misty).
