Blessing and a Curse

Blessing and a Curse is a photography based installation that demonstrates the prolonged effects of putting others ahead of yourself. The series follows a poem written by artist Jonna Alberta, to accompany the photography works. The poem illustrates the wear on a person after continuous dilution of oneself in order to saturate those around them. Alberta’s current practice aims to expose her interpersonal experiences while stimulating a response from the audience by breaking the barrier of their emotional suppression. By combining medium and narrative, she looks to mirror the over-giving of self we all may have in common.
