Control yourself (even if you feel dead inside, hurt and barren)

Heidi Holmes

Front Gallery
4 Jun 2016–25 Jun 2016
Opening 12.00am 1 Jan 1970

Control

Control yourself

Calm yourself

Want it

Not too much though

Make sure you do all the things

Don’t think about the things too much

Empty nest ness

You’re still young

You might be too old

Endo hurt, endless hurt

Geriatric-stuck-ovary, sad-stuck-uterus, no-tubes

Get stuck into life

Stuck in life

Stuck

Stuck

Control yourself (even if you feel dead inside, hurt and barren) is an exploration of the artist’s experience of her body and mind within the ongoing process of baby-making, failing fertility and the resulting process of In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF).

  • Heidi Holmes recently completed an Honours year in Bachelor of Fine Art (Painting) at The Victorian College of the Arts. She is a current member of the SEVENTH Gallery board and will be exhibiting new work at West Space Gallery in September 2016. https://heidiholmes.net/
