rules for photographing a scoliotic patient is Soak Teng’s first solo exhibition. The work first developed with the artist’s personal experience with scoliosis and an encounter with medical archives. This grew into collaborations with other individuals, which yielded intimate portraits and interviews about treating and living with scoliosis.
Through found images, text and video works, the project parses the role of image-making in medicine and in sharing lived experience. It is an attempt to make sense of living with and the treatment of the abnormal curvature of the spine.
Venue: Lower Gallery, Objectifs
