None of us need to be repaired, but we all need a little help – sometimes.

Inspired by the world of plants and ecology – the relationship between different organisms and between organisms and their environment – «FOREST» is a meditation on dependence, independence, interdependence and the offer and acceptance of help.

Who do we think needs support, and who do we expect to be able to do everything themselves? What assumptions do we make about others, and what assumptions do we make about ourselves? How do we read the bodies of others based on what we see or don’t see? How do we ask for support and how do we give it to others?

«FOREST» subtly attempts to question our individual and social attachments and our assumptions about independence, interdependence and giving and receiving support. «FOREST» utilises the experience, knowledge and perspectives of disabled artists and champions the ability of all of us to care and support others in different ways.
