Lay Her Down Upon Her Back, Róisín White

Launch and Signing 6pm Thu 14 December
At The Library Project, 4 Temple Bar Street, D02 YK53.

Pre-orders are now open for Róisín White’s new photobook in advance of the launch and signing at 6pm on Thursday 14th December at The Library Project.

Winner of Landskrona Foto and Breadfield Dummy Award, the book brings together the artist’s own photographs, found archival material, handmade drawings, oral accounts, and extracts from literature. Lay Her Down Upon Her Back looks at the history of medical mistreatment and uneven power relations between male doctors and female patients through a type of photography where evidence itself plays the role of symptom. For both in photography and in hysteria it is the surface that carries meaning and depth, providing the space onto which meaning plays out.

Join us at The Library Project to celebrate Róisín’s latest publication and our last event of the year 2023.
