Last Friday we went to another InPractice event at Royal Academy of Arts in London.
All the artists were fantastic! It was great to see them sharing their work and talking about their artistic processes.
I was specially inspired by the experience of a trans artist. Her work shows many phases of the process since the early days when she became aware of who she was, going thorough her decision to transitioning, the surgery and the experience of recent years as a trans woman. She was so honest and keen to clarify many misunderstandings about gender dysphoria. All the struggle, pain and accomplishment expressed in her art, amazing!
It was also great to follow the experience of an artist who had a stroke that limited him a lot physically. His work is really funny, made us laugh, he showed amazing positivity and sense of humour despite his painful condition.
The makers were Matty, Julia, Vera, Nina and Anahita. We made 5 dolls, I’ll finish them all at home.
‘It made me feel useful. It made me feel calm.’
Thank you so much Molly and Sarah for inviting us, it is always wonderful to attend InPractice
