The bit I tell institutions and that:
“Aislinn Evans is an interdisciplinary artist from East London working in print, performance, and participation. They navigate the peripheries of culture at the intersection of working-class, neurodivergent, and queer experiences. Their work interrogates the class status of fine art disciplines and embraces the radically lowbrow. Aislinn reclaims archetypal narratives and retells, reframes, reimagines the story of the outsider.“
What that means in practice:
- I work across media and disclipines; you can find me in a theatre, a print shop, a community centre, a field…
- I’ve made comics, games, poems that are both comics and games, prints, performances…
- In all disciplines, my work prioritises material accessibility (it’s cheap, you can get to it, you could make it yourself), participation & interactivity, and radical politics.
- I like to work with people. My artwork has taken the form of youth groups, poetry slams, and roleplaying games. Even when I’m not there, I make work that needs your participation to exist.
- I’m interested in class, queerness, and neurodivergence, and the experiences of people at that intersection (like myself).
- My practice is also very interested in place, the city, the edgeland, and how people navigate space.
