Mid September ’10
Karolyn Gehrig is a queer disabled artist, writer, advocate and performer known for creating #HospitalGlam, a social media based movement which uses site specific self photography to reclaim clinical space and boost disabled voices. Her work has been featured in the Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, The Guardian, and many more outlets. This year, she presented at Stanford’s Medicine X, BinderCon and attended a reception at the White House for Women’s History Month. She currently lives in Los Angeles, where she performs at storytelling shows and moderates a semi-active hummingbird feeder. This suite is part of a series called DV Grey, which references both the flattened affect built through domestic violence, and the formal properties of most of the pieces (graphite/dove grey paper). They’re not chronological, to heighten disorientation and disruption.
