Conference description

Alexis Bulman will present a short talk addressing the research undertaken during her Interrogating Access Residency. During this residency, Alexis Bulman decided to apply the knowledge gained from different workshops, webinars and independent research into the creation of two new bodies of work: Remodel, a series of five drywall sculptures, and Tending To, a video performance. The former invites audiences to imagine the structures and systems that we tend to see as immovable as flexible, while the latter demonstrates the role of tenderness in care and consideration. From concept to presentation, both works were developed with accessibility as forethought as opposed to an afterthought.

Alexis Bulman is a facilitator, collaborator, and builder of sculptures, installations, performances and video works that question and translate the patterns of her physical movement and bodily occupation of space into visual form. Her multi-media approach to art making begins by taking cues from natural and manufactured forms and happenings in the environment and in her personal life, while her disability and physical ability influence the materials and conceptual framework that engage audiences in political, psychological, and geographical contexts.
