Róisín White - Lay Her Down Upon Her Back

Witty Books

Regular price $30.00

Bringing together the artist’s own photographs, found archival material, handmade drawings, oral accounts and extracts from literature, Lay Her Down Upon Her Back looks at the history of medical mistreatment and uneven power relations between male doctors and female patients through a type of photography where evidence itself plays the role of symptom. For both in photography and in hysteria it is the surface that carries meaning and depth, providing the space onto which meaning plays out.
