'Art that is daring, bold and radical' Disability Arts Online (on Cherophobia)
A woman lies in a bare room being dressed, being undressed.
A live, durational performance that explores the interaction between a female, disabled body and an able bodied male. Essentially familiar and at the same time absurd, the manner in which the man undresses and redresses Lakmaier remains ambiguous. Is this consent or tolerance?
