this new work – “markings” emerges as performative impressions that center disabled and Deaf folx through an intersectional lens. Resisting pervasive notions that erase disabled and Deaf bodies from conceptions of the future, i seek to reflect how these communities can and will occupy space as we evolve as a society. in addition to a floor piece that will be created in real time, a video collaboration with Deaf Spectrum will be exhibited in ‘conversation’ with the floor markings. the video features Nur Abdulle signing as a linguistic expression of mark-making.
The gallery is located at 205 Hudson St. and is wheelchair accessible. ASL interpretation will be available at the opening. The exhibit runs through March 31, 2019.
