Group Exhibition

'Encountering A New Normal' showcased 17 Neurodiverse Womxn creative's work through an online exhibition. Alongside each artwork as an Audio Description which was co-authored by 3 of the other artists in the exhibition. These were recorded either by the authors of the Audio descriptions or by myself and mixed by me. Below is a screen shot preview of the exhibition. Please click HERE for the full exhibition.

I created 5 video pieces and an audio collage. I put these together on a webpage and sent them to various institutions and curators. As a result I was programmed in Buzzcut festival, curated by DATEAGLE ART and have a future partnership confirmed with Queer Arts Projects, DYSPLA, 'Chaos Magic' gallery in Nottingham and have meetings with Onca in Brighton, Slominski projects and Exeter Phoenix about future projects.
