I Can Only Make It Up Once. Exhibition

“Modern Fuel presents, in its State of Flux Gallery, a new installation of work and a performance by Kingston artist Lisa Figge titled I Can Only Make It Up Once. Exploring disability as a location of knowledge, Figge makes artworks such as experimental video and puppets to renegotiate the terms of living in a body that is no longer able-bodied. She is making artwork about how it feels to be in a differently mobile body. Drawing together a broad range of texts from Cultural Studies, Philosophy, Disability Studies, Performance Studies, Art and Puppetry, presents a problem that everyone shares. Compulsory ablebodiness keeps us isolated and at a distance from each other in strange and troubling ways.”
