I Feel Blue, They Sense Rose
(CH 2017, 9 min)
The video I feel blue, they sense rose questions the process of seeing by deconstructing the medical gaze. How does science remind us of women’s bodies? How can the appropriation of the female body be documented through medicine and its history? The artist confronted herself with knowledge by working with historical artifacts from the Medical Collection at the University of Zurich. This collaboration gave her the opportunity to explore history on a subjective and interactive level.
