Around the Table – Meningitis

Nathalie Hartog-Gautier


Around the table is a chronicling of the history of human disease over many centuries. Hand-cast in paper and then worked back into with digital images of different diseases and their causes, each plate acts as both a petri dish and a reminder of previous instances in history where communities experienced hardships, isolation and sickness. Presented as a series of plates in commune, Hartog-Gautier’s work is an account of the impingements COVID-19 has placed on our sense of community, social interactions and ability to gather together. It is also a reminder that while our current moment might feel isolating, as a species we have overcome similar health crises in the past and have been able to move on and rebuild. Around the table is one of 51 works selected as finalists in the 2021 Fremantle Arts Centre Print Award.
