"The only thing better than teaching about the importance of identity is being part of showing it!"
The Welcome Trust
I was part of a project that looked at different body types. I modelled alongside amputees, to create a collection of photographs looking at the strengths of disabled bodies.
Collaborating with Figuration.co I modelled at the art supply store GreatArt. A group of artists were invited to sketch me whilst I spoke about my experiences of disability and gender.
Beneath The Skin
This was a two-year project with artist, Annabel Mednick. Through oil paintings, sketches and installation, we showed that despite my differences, I can model and be captured to show beyond my disability..
I modelled in the Henry Moore Gallery for about 30 sitting artists. At the same time, I conducted an open discussion about the challenges of modelling with Cerebral Palsy as well as asking the artists what it was like to draw somebody with involuntary movements.
The Horse Hospital
I modelled at the unique Horse Hospital gallery for an exhibition called Arrows of Desire, the art show celebrating the agony and ecstasy of Saint Sebastian.
I was invited to film with independent film makers MyGenderation (http://mygenderation.com/ ) to make a documentary called TransAND. This short film is about who I am and my transition journey.
