Point of Departure collaborative installation with Dr Mark Elliot-Ranken

Pool Rules art installation at Articulate Project Space


My art installation investigates the issue of ableism or discrimination against less able bodied swimmers in public pools. In a throwback to the Nazi era elite swimmers are often unfairly privileged while those with injuries, disabilities or older swimmers struggle for equal access. This artwork highlights such social inequality and presents a protest banner, photographic documentation and actual email correspondence between a less able bodied swimmer and pool management. The installation also includes portraits of people randomly selected from the street who were asked to pose in front of this banner to be part of the exhibition if they agreed with its message.
