Her art work will be showing at this year's Other Art Fair at Victoria House. It was submitted  earlier this year to a panel of curators from the Saatchi Gallery, and was chosen from 1000 other practitioners' to form part of a select show. Previous editions of the fair have been hailed as the 'future of the YBA generation'. The event is rapidly gaining the critical acclaim and prestige that Frieze and the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition hold.

In addition, her essay work will be published in the artist anthology by the collective_isthisit _as part of the group exhibition Terms and Conditions May Apply, which concerns surveillance, the monitoring and mediation of online/offline lives by corporations and government bodies accompanied by the monetising of one's personal and private data. Based on her part two undergraduate thesis titled, 'The Art of Warring Networks,' the essay takes Sun Tzu's treatise as a stimulus and documents the rise of 'post-internet' culture viewed through the lens of aesthetic theory. It proposes the use of the networked-self as defense against the corporations that host them. It features a series of original interviews with contemporary practitioners. The show runs until 18th August at Annka Kultys Gallery in London.
