[Images description: five photographs by artist Sharona Franklin. In them, their gelatine sculptures of animal origin encapsulate natural fibres, medicinal herbs and leftovers of wood, metals and botanical ingredients].
“Healing Methodologies”, by Sharona Franklin
Each dissolving form alludes to the body, dismantling of disability stigmas, and the reality of undermined reproductive rights intrinsic to the use of living cells in the treatment of genetic disease aiming to expand interpretations of ecological symbiosis and disabilities. Animal-derived gelatin encapsulates natural fibers, herbal medicines, wood scraps, metals, and botanicals into bionic constellations. The works invite the viewer with facets of transparency and opacity in otherworldly domestic visions.
