Don’t Leave Me Hanging portrays an imaginary landscape of pills that are suspended in various states of dissolution, encapsulating their desperate efforts to connect, belong, and not be left there, hanging. Yesum Yoon’s research dives into the contemporary use of over-the-counter and nutraceutical pills, particularly into how the pills’ values and promises may significantly affect more behaviours and lifestyles than the medicinal qualities on bodies. People desperate to live fully take over-the-counter medications for quick relief and daily nutraceuticals to enhance health and achieve the perfect balance. Through the choice of these empty promises, they hang shaping the panorama, neither dead nor alive, in a state of near-burnout.
