The art of life adapting: drawing and healing.

Fremantle, Chris


Chris Fremantle


The author, a practice-led researcher and cultural producer, draws on his own experience of cancer treatment and his use of art as a way to make aspects visible. He relates this to the larger intersubjective and social questions of cancer as an overwhelming force affecting society. Approaches in art, including improvisation, are relevant to adaptation, a process which is necessary for living with cancer.
