Show & Tell: Annie Hodgkins

University of Iowa

June 15, 2021

Between themes of feminine identity, divinity, and inheritance, Annie Hodgkins of the University of Iowa uses her photography to examine her own identity and experience as a female-bodied person. In her ongoing series, “Mitochondrial Eve,” she specifically investigates the complicated journey of growing into a woman without a mother. “I create these objects almost as if I were creating living organisms,” she says. “I use installation as a way to observe or ‘study’ the organisms I make, as if studying their life cycle will give me the answers of what it means to grow and age as a woman.”
