A journey between layers of corporal consciousness, Hull explores the physical memory of trauma, and the psychological repercussions of a surgical disaster.
At the age of 34 I had surgery that resulted in the loss of my uterus. Since the surgery, the psychological relationship I have to my body has changed. I lost not only an organ but also the conscious memory of the moment when my life was altered significantly. My body remembers things my mind cannot. I want to recover what I have lost.—Tara Merenda Nelson
