Being Patient

 

ArtAlmanacFinalThis exhibition is ironically titled ‘Being Patient’ since I’m a hopelessly impatient person. Being a patient inevitably involves handing over ones body to the medical profession and experiencing this ordeal as a submissive subject.  As such, this exhibition is an attempt to exert some agency and control of my predicament as it explores my responses to treatment for rectal cancer.
