125 / Maggie Nightingale / UK

This is a frame from Maggie's video "Parsley" which will be screened at the exhibition.
She also sent postcards of the image.

This video is a stop-motion animation of a woman undergoing a painful transition with a screeching soundtrack of crickets
"I had a painful dream that the benign cyst in my brain was actually a living cricket-like creature, wanting to grow larger and let its legs grow through my body. The realisation of my feelings somehow lessened the anxiety and pain I experienced knowing it was there and always will be."
