A visual exploration of past, present, and future LGBTQI+ identity. A discussion about censorship, erasure, and acceptance among the context of the church institution and broader society.
Aftercare is a series of 10 photographic works exploring the emotional and psychological ideology behind selfcare and wellbeing. Created as a physical embodiment using layers of pink bubble wrap, encasing the head and body of the figure. This covering alludes to fetishised notions of protection and care, replicating common tropes associated with actions based around aftercare as a period of recovery and healing, through not just a physical action, but including mental health based selfcare ideals in a society with a commercialised response to wellbeing. The interaction of identical multiple figures allude to the psychological paths and states of being, contained in the one person.
