Panteha Abareshi is a disabled interdisciplinary artist based in LA. Her work is rooted in her existence as a chronically ill body existing with multiple medical illnesses—the origin of which is sickle cell zero beta thalassemia, a genetic blood disorder that causes debilitating pain and bodily deterioration. Through her work, she aims to discuss the complexities of living within a structure that is highly monitored, examined, and made to feel like a specimen. The radicalized abjectification of her own corporeal form allows for a continued scrutiny of her bodily decline, and its connection to a larger context of universal fragility, fear, pain and mortality.
