Aaron Williamson has been making performances internationally for more than 15 years. This book documents 40 distinct solo performances presented all around the world, the collaboration with Katherine Araniello as ‘The Disabled Avant-Garde’ and the video work of the disability artist’s collective 15mm Films that Williamson leads.
The documentation centres on texts by Williamson to describe each performance or video piece, before digressing to retrace the creative process, explore theoretical ideas, recount anecdotes and offer artistic statements, using accessible and entertaining writing. The preface is an in-depth interview with Williamson, ‘Performance, Disability, Humour and Being in Public’ by Dr Marquard Smith (chief-editor of Journal of Visual Culture) and the book is also profusely illustrated by documentary photos and video stills in full-colour, and printed on art-paper.
An accessible PDF version of this book is available by request.
