unsolicited advice!

Unsolicited Advice! is a body of work developed over a lifetime of navigating awkward and often invasive, unsolicited advice I receive because I am disabled.

Extracts from these conversations have been sewn into vibrant quilts and cushions with which the audience is invited to interact. The artworks critique these interactions, amplifying all the cliché and thoughtless advice disabled people are accustomed to receiving—highlighting the absurdity of society's compulsion to rescue, change, or fix disabled people.
