Cassandra is an artist from Australia, currently based in London. Her art moves across disciplines, as she explores hidden narratives; investigating how society is constructed, identity, sense of self and the subconscious mind.
Her response to the theme “voices” explores the long lasting effects of the families we are born into.
How does our upbringing infiltrate our relationships, self perception and sense of worth?
How can we know that the behaviours that are modelled are not normal when it’s all we have been exposed to?
Cassandra will explore the external factors that acted as stepping stones to an abusive relationship that lasted 10 years, what stopped her from leaving and how it felt to inhabit her body as she moulded herself to someone else’s vision.
