The exhibition seeks to give voice to marginalized experiences within healthcare, with an emphasis on the lived experiences of disabled artists.The title RESONATE BODIES recognizes the human body as a vessel which resonates, whether that is the sound of ones’ own breath, heartbeat, or the resonance of memories and accumulated experiences. The exhibition invites its viewers to examine their own relationships to their bodies and reflect upon their own interactions with the healthcare system. That is, in what ways might you find yourself resonating?

Laura Campbell is an Oxford-based artist who holds a MFA from Oxford Brookes University. Her practice contributes to conversations of disability, and how her own experience fits into socio-political spheres within contemporary arts. Laura uses her body as material through performance processes, exploring the sculptural nature of the image through the material and visual representations of stretching and pain. Her work provides direct political commentary and discourse on social policy and accessibility, whilst challenging patriarchal and ableist political ideology. Laura navigates her bodily experience through the current political climate that forces her to justify her existence and value as a disabled woman and artist. Her exhibit will feature stretched fabric and projections.
