The Full Catastrophe | Karen Asher

The Full Catastrophe | Karen Asher

The Full Catastrophe encompasses the all-consuming chaos of life- the highs and the lows, the beautiful and the bizarre: the delirious absurdity of it all. The photographs treat the movement, gesture, abstraction, and exchanges of bodies sculpturally, using equal parts humour and horror to dive into the human condition. The domestic spaces reflect the interiority of anxiety and chaotic intimacies, revealing how these clash, obliterate, or co-habit. The series was inspired by personal illness but soon moved beyond the complexity of Asher’s own experience to explore how we all live inside a catastrophe of one kind or another.
