Ker wallwork

Ker Wallwork is an artist who lives and works in London. Their multi-disciplinary practice is concerned with language, communication, queerness, sickness and the welfare state. Working with moving-image, drawing, text and sculpture, their work considers the potentials of miscommunication through disordered and humorous narratives. They have worked with writers, scientists, academics and actors to develop projects that explore the materiality of specific social, political and historical contexts. They also work on the archive of the Mental Patients Union, to preserve key items from the 1970s survivor movement, alongside broader survivor and disability rights archival projects.
