Project Ability : Artist in Residency
In August 2019, I had the chance to be an Artist
in Residency at Project Ability Studios in Glasgow.
Through my time there, I got the opportunity to meet and collaborate closely with talented artists and document their unique creative processes.
I also listened and recorded their experiences with physical disabilities and/ or mental distress, and how the action of crafting alleviated personal symptoms of both a physical and psychological nature.
The project provided a personal enriching experience, resulting in a series of photographic portraits as well as moving image.
This project motivated my undergraduate dissertation topic on disability, trauma and the art.
This was followed by my most recent Master’s project focusing on the consequences of medical ableism on the individual.
