Through my research-based artistic practice, I examine cultural and ideological conditions underpinnings the construction of sexuality, gender, desire and normality. Over the past ten years, my work has encompassed an exploration of hysteria and related psychosomatic disturbances in medical and neuroscientific discourses. I am interested in hysteria because shifting neurological and psychiatric definitions of this disorder at different historical periods have influenced our current understanding of normality and the emotionally adequate reactions to distress. My artworks references and recontextualises historical films, medical photographs, and written material from the nineteenth century up until today. By challenging the visual codes that underpin restrictive notions of (ab)normality, I create alternative interpretations of what has been reductively categorised as aberrant subjectivity and/or rejected as the transgressive “otherness.” My work has been shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rijeka (Croatia), Fotogalerie Wien, Kunsthalle Leipzig, GRASSI Museum Leipzig, Fotogalleriet Format Malmö, Museo Municipal de Bellas Artes Tenerife, Centre national de l’audiovisuel Luxembourg, MAMAC Liege (Belgium), Einstein Forum Potsdam, and Shenzhen Fine Art Institute (China).
