By My Bed

Emerging Writers Festival 2022

What are the objects that make up your world? On display at No Vacancy gallery for the duration of the festival as well as online, Disabled Artists with lived experience of disability, chronic pain, and chronic illness answer the question ‘What are the objects that make up your world?’ by sharing photographs of their bedsides. Alongside the photographs, find the artists’ musings about the body, accessibility, care, community, and the order, mess, and tenderness that can accumulate by their beds.

You will find works by Jase Cordova, Mali Hermans, Jessica  Knight, Tori Hobbs, Elena Macdonald, Jo NewmanMichelle Roger, N.S.Sibanda and Hannah Turner in By My Bed.

This event is in partnership with the Emerging Writers Festival.
