Perfomance Art by Aaron Williamson

On Monday 14th November I went to the Arts and Disability Forum to listen to Deaf Performance Artist, Aaron Williamson give a talk. Aaron was in Belfast to discuss his work and to perform at the Catalyst Gallery. Unfortunately his partner, Katherine Araniello was unable come. Aaron showed some of his video work with Katherine, this one in particular is hilarious - Amazing Art by Disabled Advant-Garde

Later in the week I went to see Aaron perform at the Catalyst:

Meeting Aaron gave me a different opinion of Performance Artists. His work is all disability related and speaking to him helped me understand his work more. We've all seen performance art and thought some of it was pretentious but finding out about the artist beforehand definitely helps.
