When it comes to living with chronic illness, getting comfortable with your body and the uncertainty of your existence is an ongoing process. The uncertainty is present in balancing between fear and safety, seriousness and humor as well as voluntariness and necessity. In the core of these works and Jemina Lindholm's artistic process are the companionship and on/off relationship with own body and self. What happens when getting comfortable is a means of survival and acceptance of yourself and the uncertain is a way of life by necessity?
Lindholm (b.1991) is a visual artist, producer and an Art Education master student at Aalto University. She is finishing up her Master of Arts degree at Aalto University, working mainly with moving image, photography and community based art. Video works for the exhibition in M8 Art Space were selected through an open call.
