Bathroom mirror on the wall, what do we hide behind the cabinet door?
Pharmaceuticals is a collection of furniture embedded with the stories hidden in bathroom cabinets. Contained are all the pills, ointments and perfumes we use to fit into a narrow frame of what it is to be human.
Each pill, cream and bottle represents a story of a condition, an aspiration for a better life and an identity to escape from or to endorse. In a world where god is dead, medical science is a powerful voice shaping our lives and identities. A medicine cabinet becomes a window into our inner lives, showing our true stories.
Pharmaceuticals is saturated with layers of stories about control and stigma. It is an intersection between social constructs, hope, beauty and shame. This is the ultimate social construct.
