VIP (2019)

Series of 2 + 2AC


The work brings together the viewer and three women with intellectual and learning disabilities in a virtual space. The name of the work (VIP = very important person) challenges us to reflect, who do we value, and who are the ones misrecognized and rejected in our community. People with disabilities are still one of the most excluded groups in society. The work opens up the women's experiences, such as being different but also feeling the same. The issues of love, touch, family, capability, and normalcy are discussed too, as well as the delicate topics of loneliness and hopes for a relationship.
