An exhibition of painting, photography and sculpture by Deaf Artists Rubbena Aurangzeb-Tariq, Louise Stern, Christopher Sacre & Ruaridh Lever-Hogg
Private views and Artists Talks In London, Chatham Kent, Birmingham & Edinburgh
Translating the Deaf Self is a research project which began in 2016. The project explores Deaf British Sign Language users’ experience of being translated by BSL interpreters and the connections of translation to Deaf culture. During the course of this pioneering research the academic team identified a need to find innovative approaches which could yield a deeper understanding of the complexity of translation and its connections to identity and culture.
The artists selected are Rubbena Aurangzeb-Tariq, Christopher Sacre, Louise Stern and an intern Ruaridh Lever-Hogg. The artists have been in residence at locations across the UK – London (Deafplus, Whitechapel), Essex (Royal Association for Deaf People (RAD)), Manchester (Manchester Deaf Centre) and Edinburgh (Deaf Action).
