"Script/Rescript" features the artwork of ten artists who use historical and contemporary medicalizing scripts of their own bodies to colorfully rescript – or rewrite – visual language attributed to individual conditions of disability. An X-ray, a prosthesis, a cane, a crutch, a pill, a wheelchair tire, or a syringe are the foundation in which to build new creative layers of empowered self-described embodiment. The work in this exhibition conveys disabled identity via new mapping, through-lines and mark-making, where the artists reject pathological archives by injecting them with memories, lived experiences, and sensorial attributes.
