This exhibition has ended.
Silence (2020) by Nina Thomas explores silence, deaf experience, and language. It includes references to Alexander Graham Bell, and oralism – an approach to education which assumes speech to be superior to sign language and which forces deaf children to lip read and speak rather than sign.
Silence is commissioned by LUX as part of a new ongoing series exploring access in artists’ moving image.
