Yvonne Buchheim

Life Turned Upside Down

What does your body know? With this question the artist Yvonne Buchheim invited people into her studio for portraits attempting to capture body knowledge. What she did not know was the story that her own body would tell.

In this art book, Buchheim shares her story of healing from cancer. Her artworks are poetic reiterations between visual and written language, revealing the many effects that serious illness can have on the body and mind. The artwork is complimented by two essays that explore fragility and resilience in surviving illness. Kopfüberleben (Life Turned Upside Down) presents us with creative forms of storytelling that use drawing, photography, and stop-motion filmmaking not as documents but as a narrative of self-discovery.
