Part of Staging Breast Cancer Trilogy, MIA is a multi-media installation in two parts, repeated symmetrically.
When a patient is told that there is no evidence of breast cancer anymore in their bodies, is that truthfully when and where the pain ends? Mia and Mark discuss the illness while they discover other realities as a couple.
The patriarchal gaze and norms have taken hold of women’s bodies and minds for a long time. Mia, Meg, and Sam decide it is high time they changed those toxic views. They find solace in revealing and embracing their own truths.
