    Using her experiences within the medical system as a point of departure, Caroline Mauxion reanimates the body to reclaim agency and expose a tension between the clinical and the sensual. For her first solo exhibition outside of Quebec, the Montreal-based artist disrupts traditional photography to create a series of intimate mixed-media installations that transform the body into a site both deeply familiar and totally unknown.
