More about the exhibition
Conceived as an accessible, creative experience informed by individuals with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD), the exhibition takes the form of an interactive landscape which invites audiences on a journey of light, sound, touch and smell. From a huge silk sail which sways softly, to sculpture that translates audio into vibrating pulses, and a playful tower emitting light, smoke and bubbles – each artwork within this gentle fairground offers a new encounter.
Human Threads is the culmination of years of pioneering research by Artlink and the Cherry Road Learning Centre. Through a process of mutual learning via collaborative play. Each artwork has been developed with and informed by individuals with PMLD and invites audiences to interact through a variety of senses. The works expand our perceptions of what an artwork might be and break down barriers of access to contemporary art. Throughout Human Threads the physical experience of the artwork becomes a shared, communal language through which to explore new possibilities of human perception.
