How do we navigate the terrain of women’s body image in disease, health, and beauty? Artist and breast cancer survivor, Kira Wu’s Fold Unfold speaks about gathering strength, drawing courage, and remaining resilient in her artistic journey while living the journey of medical treatment. She transforms written text in personal journals, magazines from doctors’ offices, brochures from waiting rooms, patient information forms, and medical literature into new spaces of negotiation. Fragile, torn, flat, two-dimensional paper becomes multi-dimensional origami as pieces of found paper are folded and unfolded and as the content they carry is framed and reframed in new contexts.
