The Lie, 2010
Duration: 09:26

Camera: Brian Smith

The concept for The Lie came to me in 2008 while I was undergoing treatment for thyroid cancer.  I was at a low point lying in bed, in a space between dreams and reality repeating to myself, “I am a strong and confident woman.”  But all the while, my nose was growing longer and longer through each repetition of this voice in my mind.  I knew immediately that I would be making work based on this experience, reflecting upon the conflicting notions of strength and vulnerability, and how they often go hand in hand.  The Lie is the first of a series of projects that stem from these ideas.
