The term 'Hysteria' derived from the word 'Hystera'. 'Hystera' translates from Greek to 'womb' or ‘uterus'. Hysteria became associated with Hippocrates’  theory of 'The Wandering Womb'. This claimed the uterus as a living creature that would, when unsatisfied, detach itself from its rightful place and roam the female body. Drawing on this history, Hystera, intimately reflects on the experience of living with endometriosis and the challenges of receiving such a diagnosis. This project has many forms: photography, moving image, installation and printed book.
