WENDY LILLY at A Space (401 Richmond West) to June 16. 416-979-9633. Rating: NN
wendy lilly gets about as personal as possible. By using excerpts from her own medical records, she creates a body of work that no other individual legally could.
The four multimedia pieces documenting an individual's fear and pain in the face of medical crisis (the works are called Chronic Disease, Acute Inflammation, Discharge and Normalization) clearly come from very deep within, but the inclusion of used saline drips, lab reports dated as recently as March 2001, empty Rx bottles and actual kidney stones may be too visceral for many to bear.DH
