Alice Goad BA (Hons) Photography 2020

Alice Goad’s Private and Confidential is year long project digging into her medical history. At just six months old she was diagnosed with Biliary Atresia and went on to receive a life-saving liver transplant. Private and Confidential reflects upon how her childhood in and out of hospital, and a life time on medication has shaped her as a person. Using her body as implement she communicates through photography, performance and video to open conversation around feelings of alienation, guilt and trauma. The performative relationship between her and the lens has become a form of therapy to aid her journey through trauma.
