At its core, wellness is the individualisation of health concerns, the replacement of ‘makeable society’ by the malleable self. Wellness sells health as a lifestyle choice, a lie that has been successfully countered by the ongoing pandemic. My work offers a critique of the pressure of the individual that wellness establishes. The space I created is modelled after a bedroom, an individual space in defiance of the pressures of extreme treatments and regiments of clean and scheduled living. You can’t sell anything to a sleeping woman.
