The Whole Macrocosm On Imaging (2024)
Eugenie is a 24 year old multidisciplinary artist from Melbourne, who seeks to make sense of their own experiences with chronic illness, neurodivergency and queerness by creating things. Their work follows the undulating rhythms of nature; grow and decay, perish and evolve; and the fluctuations in their own life; wellness and illness, ability and disability, masculine and feminine, creating and destroying. They explore their body and mind and their functions through their work as healing process; abstracting and warping the mundanities of life into something unrecognisable in order to express themselves freely, and create a sense of clarity and calmness out of the chaos of their world.
‘From The Flux’ examines the complexities of gynaecological healthcare, and the enduring patriarchal influence over medical discourse about the bodies and minds of women and gender diverse people. The hidden spaces in afab bodies are opened up to reveal the pain and joy they simultaneously harbour, with the aim of removing the mystification and misogyny that too often accompany them. Eugenie’s work is informed by their journey with endometriosis and PCOS and the strange experience of being a non-binary person with ‘women’s issues’ in a male-dominated world.
