Flesh Disease explores the physical manifestations of emotional and psychological distress through a female lens.
Five women gather together. They knit. And as they knit, they talk, telling each other the seemingly ordinary stories of their seemingly ordinary lives. But the more they talk, and the more the rhythms of their knitting are disturbed, the more insular they become. Hidden layers of emotional and physical distress – anxiety, sensitivity, depression and obsession – begin to assert themselves. Conversation breaks down. Knitting stops. All that is left are their bodies.
