We’re going live on Instagram @HeadlandsArts with Graduate Fellow Jillian Crochet (GF ‘20–’21). Jillian’s (@jilliancrochet on Instagram) performance, video, and sculpture use tactile and embodied aesthetics to communicate about disability and grief.
Jillian states: “The unceasing work of self-advocacy led me to performance. The disabled body subverts expectations about how a body should look, perform, and produce. My practice allows me to reclaim my time, my body, my power. My practice seeks to liberate the disabled body from normalized marginalization and oppression—sometimes just by showing up even if I can’t open the door.”
