Hannah Chertock is a multimedia artist exploring concepts of pain, bodies and medical technology. Her artwork aims to heighten body awareness by making viewers think about how they experience senses and movement. Her artwork is inspired by her experience with Spondyloepiphyseal Dysplasia, a bone condition that causes short stature, chronic pain, and other joint issues. Her intricate, hand-cut layered paper creations include metallic and glitter renditions of organs. The use of glitter and metallic paper represent technologies often involved in surgeries like joint and organ replacement. Her work strives to create a sense of awareness and appreciation of our bodies’ resilience through the experience of art.
