Corinne is a disabled self-portrait artist producing photographic depictions from the same 2 by 1.5 metre space; their bed. This year marks their fifth year of spending almost every day confined there. Their self-portraits are a form of therapy to ease their ongoing struggles with mental illness. Their work often focuses on ‘Daisyland’ a queer utopia, Corinne and their only childhood and imaginary friend named Daisy created.
“The biggest barrier to developing my career is my inability to be physically present; the rise of virtual working during the pandemic removed this barrier. From bed I undertook remote residences with The New Art Gallery Walsall, QUAD, Talking Birds and Level Centre. I’m a member of The New Art Gallery Walsall’s ‘Collections Community Panel’ who helped co-produce ‘Here & Queer’ and the current exhibition ‘Pride & Privilege’.
