rules for photographing a scoliotic patient (working title)
2020 - ongoing
Developing out of personal experience with scoliosis and a chance encounter with medical archive at the Wellcome Collection, rules for photographing a scoliotic patient finds its way through found images, text, materials and objects related to the abnormal curvature of the spine.
Through arrangement of visual and tactile materials and collaboration with other scoliotic individuals, this ongoing exercise attempts to make sense of various inventions of spinal interventions, the role of image-making in the medical field, the male gaze towards the female body and human experiences of living with spinal deformity.
