Residency at the Walker: July - November 2012
As part of DaDaFest 2012 Aaron Williamson is currently artist in residence at the Walker Art Gallery and is using his time to 'eavesdrop' upon the paintings in the collection.
This 'eavesdropping' will result in performance-based interventions taking place in the gallery on 15, 16, 17 November.
See our what's on listings for full details of Aaron's performances and life drawing sessions in November.
"As a deaf person, it seems to me that the Walker's Victorian art collection is vibrantly alive with whispers and questions, taunts and sayings: the mutterings against the silence of tight-lipped Victorian society. I want to listen to the collection, imaginatively, and use this research as the source of an entirely fictitious new interpretation of the paintings." - Aaron Williamson
This project was commissioned by DaDaFest 2012 as part of 'Niet Normaal: Difference on Display' in association with Liverpool Biennial.
