Heidi Barkun’s transdisciplinary practice explores the experience of illness, infertility, identity and failure. Her work is conceptual and intuitive, employing feminist autobiographical / autopathographical / autotheoretical methodology to interweave health and social sciences with her artistic practice. She confers artistic value to lived experience in social, political and medical spheres, as well as to the artefacts these experiences produce, as a means to critique and subvert normative understandings of the body, reproductive biotechnology and womanhood. By centering alternate forms of knowledge making and transmission, Heidi seeks to foster conversations about these taboo subjects.
