Ruth Waters - I Used to Dream About My Cat Dying

I Used to Dream About My Cat Dying print was part of the exhibition Swallow Up by Ruth Waters at 1646. Waters is interested in the causes of anxiety and how they supposedly need to be cured. Phobias, existential fear, alternative commercialized therapy and therapeutic language are recurring motifs in her work. She raises questions about our inherent desire to heal without delving deeper into what actually makes us unwell. By exploring these topics in depth, Waters aims to reveal the vulnerability of the human body in relation to the relentless and complex globalized economy.
