Anna, 2015

This artwork explores the complex and devastating effects of eating disorders. It is a biographical work about a young woman suffering from anorexia nervosa. The piece is in the form of a young girl’s dress as ‘Anna’ confessed that her “anorexia was about maintaining her childhood” – she hand stitched the pocket. The ‘Size 0’ label underlines the need to be thin. All of the text is sewn with human hair.
