‘Maison Migraine’

Fran Kelly

Inspired by her research and personal experience, Fran’s work is a response to the experience of migraine, focusing on the aura aspect of the condition.

Aura is a sensory disturbance which can manifest as distorted vision, auditory hallucinations, muscle weakness, and even coma.

Exploring the themes of distortion, immersive art, and phenomenology, Fran aims to re-evaluate the relationship between personal experiences and scientific understanding.

‘Maison Migraine’ is an immersive experience, that will transform you, the viewer, into a participator.

“No amount of empathy can dissolve the barrier between observation and experience” (Serpentine Gallery, 2006 p.21)
