Christa Donner

p p p p " Artmaking is my microscope and my scalpel: The tool I use to investigate the human body through sensation and imagination. My work explores the complexity of internal and external body image, its roots in the notion of hysteria, and the ways that we misinterpret or mis-imagine our physical selves. Illness and injury, reproductive systems, bodily function, power, and mass media are all key elements of my visual research. Through public projects and collaborative zines I exchange stories of bodily experience to provoke dialogue both in the art world and beyond it. This inquiry allows me to transform misunderstanding and anxiety into a personal, magical, powerful re-visioning of alternative anatomies. " - Christa Donner p
