What do you see when you view others? View others more deeply through this video portrait series of seven individuals. Individuals who view the world in their own unique way and are often overlooked, underestimated and misunderstood.
The work explores notions of visibility and invisibility (particularly for people living with visible and invisible disabilities), capacity and capability, acceptance and difference.
The portraits have been made in collaboration with artists who identify with disability from Aha Ensemble. This work is based on original dance-theatre work Explain Normal which was presented by Metro Arts and Daniele Constance, in collaboration with Aha Ensemble & Phluxus2 Dance Collective.
‘He | She | They | Them | Us’ is a video based work with captioned audio components.
