China Plate and Deaf Explorer commissioned four films by Deaf artists to celebrate the winter solstice.
Deaf Explorer were delighted to co-commission Maral Mamaghanizadeh, Rinkoo Barpaga, Asnath Mokeka Losala and Ishtiaq Hussian. Each clip was to last no longer than 60 seconds and was the artist’s response to the statement; “It gets lighter from here”.
