As in previous years, I will be involved in Mirrors by doing a site specific work. I create intimate fictions through installations which often combine narrative, light effects and tableaux vivants. My practice explores the latent tension between childhood and adulthood (www.elodiesilberstein.com).

For this new artwork, I am seeking real life stories by interviewing people who are facing or have overcome Anorexia Nervosa and who would be interested to share their experience in a confidential way. The final outcome will be the publication of a diary compiled from testimonies elaborated from the interviews that will reflect the complexity and heterogeneity of this mental illness. This approach resonates with some of my initial installations in which intimacy and vulnerability were at the centre of my research, always on the borderline between public and private, fact and fiction. If you are interested in being involved, please email elodiesilberstein@westnet.com.au
