To Place with Care
Exhibited at Sluice HQ in London as part of the group exhibition Field/s curated by Thom Bridge. It was further included in "A Woman's Work" two-year European collaborative project organised by Ffotogallery and as a result as part of their publication with the same title, 2021.
To Place with Care investigates habitual movements and support structures, while examining the female role as a caregiver. The project was inspired by the restaging of 1960s vintage photographs and nursing instruction manuals, demonstrating techniques for lifting patients by imagining a non-existent weight. The training for this activity necessitated preparatory, repeated gestures in the absence of the patient, initiating a choreography of habit and muscle memory. The focus lies in the concept of rehearsal and the performative, fictional nature of photography. Emptiness in gestures results in banality, causing the focus to shift to the supporting body rather than the supported body.
