Tell me, how do I feel? 

Glasgow International Festival

11–27 June 2021


Moving image work Tell me, how do I feel? challenges the positioning of people as unreliable narrators and inaccurate witnesses of their own bodies. Grounded in my own experience of ill health and hospitalisation, and informed by numerous conversations, the work collages together archival imagery with new footage and excerpts from medical television dramas. With a voice-over formed from exchanges, quotations, and found texts, the work foregrounds personal testimony and storytelling in an attempt to dismantle the power dynamics inherent in medical practice.

Tell me, how do I feel? is being exhibited online for Glasgow International in partnership with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow alongside photographs from the college’s collection of medical instruments, documents and objects.
