“SHADE SCHOOL”

Installation, Video, Performance(2015)

 

SHADE SCHOOL is a large scale installation that I built from found objects in 2015.  It began as one desk but as the story kept unfolding, I added another and another. I now have an entire Victorian Classroom, with each piece telling a unique and individual story. In 2013 my autistic child explained to me that her teacher had been putting her under the desk as a punishment.

Like a dog!

This was one of many things that they were getting wrong. The school were screaming for inclusion at every turn, yet not training the staff to understand my child’s needs. A too common story. An archaic school setting for a modern day disabled child.

I invite you to attend SHADE SCHOOL.
