Cells investigates the embodied experience of living with cancer. The artwork uses fragmentation as a central metaphor to conjure the fractured experience of cancer. The fragments of language which make the figures reflect both the code that cancer cells carry as well as those fragmented pieces of chemotherapy that prolong the lives of those of us with cancer even as they deliver violent collateral damage. The tension between there two ideas is central to the artwork. The medical system and pharmaceutical industry’s currency is our bodies and yet the materiality, the embodied flesh of our existence is often left unacknowledged.
