Morbus — Christiana Myers
Morbus explores physical limitations of the human body relating to dysfunction, restriction, or illness. Together, the pieces selected emphasize the natural, inevitable, and universal experience of inhabiting an unwell body.
Morbus includes contributions in a variety of styles including essays, poetry, photography, and interview. It was produced in conjunction with an exhibition of contemporary art by the same name (Glasgow, 2018) but stands alone as its own collection of creative works. This is the first iteration of Morbus and hopefully not the last
