After developing a cluster of rare genetic disorders, artist Hanna Cormick cannot breathe normal air or safely be among us.
The Mermaid recontextualises her real medical devices in the form of a mermaid – free in the ocean but vulnerable on land.
Cormick risks medical emergencies to expose usually invisible topics to an intimate audience.
A revelation on rare disease, a rebellion against its limitations, and a corporeal metaphor for the fragility of our ecosystem.
