One of Zara's earliest memories as a small child is laying in bed at night rubbing her legs to soothe them. Pain has walked beside her for most of her life, a constant companion. In this solo exhibition Zara shares works from both past and present projects exploring pain. From the ritual of taking medication in The Painkiller Prints to visualising both physical and psychological trauma with her on-going series Distress.
Zara’s artistic practice investigates the hidden aspects of living with a chronic invisible illness. Her interdisciplinary work spans various media, combining print making and photography and often using materials of an ephemeral nature.
