At the Median

Annabel Fitzsimons

2018 - Ongoing

England, United Kingdom

‘At the Median’ looks at the sensory and visual facets of my neuro-divergent experience, seeking to capture a different way of seeing which results from this perspective.

The median is the plane which divides something, and can be defined both as being in the middle as well as occupying a liminal space between. The subject matter is defined by conspicuous absences, both in terms of my lived experiences of home life and in terms of my attempt to capture allegorical representations of these experiences.

Set in the New Forest where I grew up, these meditative pictures unearth a personal journey, locating memories in physical space. These reminiscences span from my family home to familiar surrounding environments, and subsequently feature both new memories formed during trips home to make the work and old memories re-experienced in a new context. In my endeavour to express the indescribable aspects of my lived experience, I reflect on the way in which my mental health alters my perspective, imparting both darkness and light to my worldview.
