Identity, illness and failure are at the centre of Heidi Barkun’s feminist transdisciplinary practice. Voice, text, object and place become means of resistance against normative definitions. Using an autotheoretical methodology and feminist epistemologies, she interweaves medical and social sciences within site-oriented installation. Her work confers artistic value on lived experience in social, political and medical spheres, and as well as on the artefacts these experiences produce. Her practice, as intuitive as it is conceptual, seeks to foster conversation about taboo subjects.
