Abstract

For the past eleven years, despite countless attempts to find a cause, I have lived with undiagnosed chronic pain. My current work delves into my experience with disability and reconstructs my own methodology in order to best accommodate my own access needs. I am calling into question what it means to create a body of work that outwardly rejects the idea that to make valuable art, I must “suffer for it.” Instead, my practice builds upon tasks—primarily breathing—that I can perform from bed when I am unwell. Material explorations aim to make visible the invisible—documenting the physical limitations that are a result of my pain, rather than searching for evidence of its existence.
