'Endometriosis (Causatum)' 2018
Oil on panel
64 x 54 cm including natural wood frame ( as seen in photo #2)
As part of 'The Host' series 2018

'The Host' is a continuation of the artist's discussion of Endometriosis - an incurable condition quietly devastating 1 in 10 women. In this exhibition, Kammer deals with the expansive impact of chronic illness through a series of revealing self-portraits and a video installation.

'Prior to and during the making of this exhibition, I have experienced countless devastations as a result of this condition. The impact of this disease is not limited to its physicality, it travels outside of the body and penetrates all facets of the host's life. It follows you always, lingering in the background and waiting to exploit vulnerability...' - Ellie Kammer
