Conjunction: Art Installation

November 2015

Part of our New Worlds project funded by Arts Council England, through Grants for the Arts, Conjunction was an immersive installation which combines soundscape from sound artist Jack Burton with projections from Alison Walton-Robson.

The exhibition was a reflection on the creative journey of Learning Disabled artists, who have been exploring and challenging perceptions of their contribution to mainstream art and culture through their involvement in Headway Arts’ New Worlds Project.

Alison Walton-Robson, Creative Director at Headway Arts explains: ‘with Conjunction, we used space as a metaphor and invited the viewer to take time to listen and look beyond their usual horizons, to think about our imagery and question their own expectations. We are created an intimate space within Headway ArtSpace for this to happen – an interesting platform for learning disabled creatives to be seen, talked about and their voices heard.’
