Canadian-born artist creating fictional pharmaceutical goods

The Canadian-born writer and artist started out in photography, beginning her best-known project – Jesus Had a Sister Productions – in 1996, after being inspired both by the proliferation of pharmacies in Paris and American style self-help culture. “A fictional pharmaceutical company specialising in quick-fix medicines”, in the artist’s words, the work-in-progress takes the form of series of outlandish pills, sprays and other paraphernalia that can fix all sorts of modern existential ills, nodding both to the absurdity of ‘60s advertising images and modern consumerist habits.
