Writing Disability Back into Art
Ashokkumar Mistry is a multidisciplinary artist, writer and curator working in the UK and internationally.
His work is nourished by actively engaging people to feed a work from different perspectives with source data or actively being part of the work.
"Looking beyond the surface traits such as identity I try to draw out both the rational and irrational that makes us who we are. Using play, metaphor, repetition, ritual and reflection I try to create artworks (or situations that lead to the creation of artworks) that sits as a mirror to contemporary human insecurities."
Through an associateships with Disability Arts Online and on other platforms, Ashokkumar Mistry has written extensivly about Disability arts and Neurodiversity. He has also reviewed a number of exhibitions and performances throughout the United Kingdom, taking the reader beyond well trodden, accepted view of the arts.
