Through the exploration of visual myth-making Larissa Monique Hauck expands on concepts surrounding vulnerability and unconsciousness as a vessel for the duality between human fantasy and reality, between our base desire and rebellion. These notional subjects respond to concerns within folklore and literature surrounding femininity, environmental intimacy, and the natural order of life & death.
