Maybe I’m being dramatic is an exploration of Lauren Hamilton’s experience with endometriosis, a condition often trivialized as just ‘being in your head’ or just ‘being your period’. Through lens-based works, Hamilton exposes the emotional and physical journey of endometriosis, offering a poignant insight into the daily struggles and resilience of women navigating an under diagnosed and misunderstood condition. Running 2 – 6 April 2024.
