People Like You at Arts Centre
5:02pm Thursday 21st March 2013 in Entertainments
A TOURING exhibition that challenges perceptions of disability has come to Salisbury Arts Centre.
People Like You is a partnership between LinkUpArts, Disability Arts Online and the Arts Centre and features work by a number of artists in film, sculpture and performance.
Artist Gini has created a series of lifesize soft sculptures to highlight aspects of disability and the paraphernalia associated with it.
On Thursday, April 11 from 3.15pm to 4.15pm and Friday April 12, from 10.15am to 11.15am, Liz Crow will reveal the hidden realities behind the public life of many disabled people with the deeply personal exposé Bedding Out.
During a continuous performance she will be in bed in the gallery space, holding conversations with visitors in person and via Twitter.
And from April 10 to 14, Sue Austin will present Creating the Spectacle which is an installation filmed under the Red Sea that shows the wheelchair as a tool of freedom and creativity.
Entry to all People Like You events is free.
