Kitchen is a multidisciplinary artist working in audio and film as a result of a debilitating and transformative illness. She explores collective cultural understandings of the female body, its intersections with and presence within the natural world.
In Her Voice the Waves Like Silk "my body is metaphorically situated somewhere in the nexus of both becoming and unbecoming; a rebirth through surrender. With significant changes in mobility, old spaces become unknown insofar as the body must learn anew how to navigate through them." In death and birth, the body is tender and immobile and often left in stillness during both moments of passage. Rituals often include the body swaddled in textiles.
