Unlimited’s first exhibition at Summerhall is a series of ambitious mixed media installations by the UK’s leading disabled artists. The exhibition deals with historical and contemporary issues, offering insight into the lives of others whilst also exploring topics which affect us all.
The works, which range from a sound installation echoing life living on the streets to psychedelic paintings exploring spirituality, challenge the myths which surround disability. The artists arrest misconceptions, opening up conversation around prejudice; a dedicated film space offers works on ageing and frailty, the legacy of war, and a darkly comic dinner party confronts associated clichés.
Project Ability artist Lea Cummings will be showing his work in LIFEFORCE ALTAR/ER, a mixed media installation which channels the collective sub-conscious and expresses the universal life-force energy field using frequency and vibration. Installation containing 3D, 2D, audio and video pieces. Available for touring now.
