“For the past ten years, Reidel’s practice has explored themes of crisis and disaster through the visual technologies of medical and climate science. In her current work, Reidel enters a new phase of her artistic practice as she turns her attention to the psychic, social and political valences of new motherhood. Informing this exploration are Reidel's reactions to ongoing cultural conversations challenging long-standing silences around sexual violence, patriarchal abuse and internalized misogyny. While still drawing on the imagery produced in the name of science, this new body of work is centered on the physical and emotional conditions of pregnancy, birth and feminine identity. Through two- and three-dimensional works, Reidel reflects on bodily trauma and transformation and their relationship to one’s evolving sense of selfhood and identity.”
