Yvonne Singer ‘pictures wellness’ with installations

Two works by Professor Yvonne Singer are featured in Picturing Wellness, an exhibition at the McMaster Museum of Art in Hamilton, Ont. running December 17, 2015 to March 26, 2016. The show focuses on a medical humanities perspective as the bridge between understanding resilience through treatment, care and social action. It presents artworks that consider issues related to trauma, the body, memory, history, medicine, health and the museum. Singer’s piece “I AM” is a 5-foot glass capital letter I, etched with a list of words from A to Z describing emotional states (I am anxious, I am happy etc). Her neon installation, “Gone Missing”, is a short story about a mysterious traumatic event that alludes to the fragility of life and memory.
