A multimedia project on survival by Karen Correia da Silva exploring the experience of cognitive behavioural therapy. The project includes objects and an artist book of poetics by Karen with photography by Oliver Grabowski documenting the creation of the project’s media assemblages. The entire project is comprised of one book, eight paintings, one sculpture, ten photo/performance prints, and eight work-in-progress prints. Two paintings and smaller works were exhibited in Toronto during our Secondary Objects exhibition at 187 Gallery.
