Untitled (I wondered when my body would deflate)
2018 | Digital Print | 16" x 24" | courtesy of the artist
This photograph is pulled from Hannah Doucet’s exhibition, I wondered when my body would deflate, which reflected her experiences of childhood illness and its distorting effects on the body both physical and perceived. The form of these works continue Doucet’s artistic practice of challenging photography as a two-dimensional medium to capture three-dimensional objects. Untitled, features a deflated fabric shape representative of a body part once subject to medical intervention.
