This work addresses anxiety and trauma, past and present. Inextricably linked with trauma comes addiction. In Recovery, the artist documents her hospital visits via collected patches, ECG stick-ups, and matter peeled off the artists space, making a bodily record of her time spent recovering.
Each patch has stayed on the artist’s body for 12-24 hours, each part of the studio collects nail polish and hairs pulled or fallen in anxiety. Together they are encapsulated in a tenuous healing structure, the bath.
The objects denote the weight of the task, the incredulous feeling that after all that has happened you could actually recover. The tension, or suspension, of disbelief that you or your life might change may not hold water: you will change, one way or another.
