A State of Recovery
Exploring the materiality of self-recovery through chemigrams, 'A State of Recovery' challenges the perception and identification of trauma being 'beautiful.' Medications and supplements were the dependant methods of coping, when the artist could not speak of the trauma that took place. Medications were used solid, crushed and mixed until dissolved into water. Chemigrams were used as a medium to create, as opposed to images of self-recovery, these items document, and bear witness to a reality that has already taken place. 'A State of Recovery' isn't just bearing witness to a traumatic past of self-recovery, but also a characterised self-portrait of the artist themselves.
