Romily Alice Waldon - www.romilyalicewalden.com
Romily Alice Walden's work is concerned with physicality and its interplay with other social categorisations and power differentials. At the core of her practice is an interrogation of contemporary embodiment and its relation to the Post-Internet age. Her work questions modern western society's relationship with looking, being looked at, gendered hierarchies, disability and the body. As a queer, disabled artist, Romily is interested in the production of the ‘other,’ and how to navigate the world whilst living within a socially devalued body. The vulnerability of the body has served as a focus for her practice since 2017; her most recent work seeks to disturb normative understandings of the disabled body, looking to bring an ethic of care, a connection between the land and the body, and a cripped concept of performance into conversation with her practice.
