Kim Hindman- Keep it to Yourself


“Gonorrhea” from “Keep it to Yourself”, Mylar, condoms, marker, 24″ x 24″ each, 2014, $500 each

Keep it to Yourself is a series of four hand drawn images of Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, HIV, and Trichomoniasis. Displayed within an arrangement of unfurled condoms, the work references a view of disease through the lens of a Petri dish. My interest lies in the fracturing of image and scientific detachment the work brings to a taboo subject.  “Keep it to Yourself” is meant to be simple and direct with a sense of abject beauty.
