Three Luton artists are collaborating in an evolving exhibition which focuses on the constraints, and also the opportunities, that are part of the day-to-day lives of disabled people navigating the urban landscape.

About

Artists Sew N Sew, Mary Hearne and Jakub Rokita will use found objects to create extraordinary new work examining themes of identity in a sometimes serious, sometimes deeply ironic way. The exhibition is inspired by the daily experiences of Sew N Sew, who uses the objects she collects along the Luton Busway – a primary route of access to the town centre on a mobility scooter – as source material for urban archaeology. 

The centrepiece of the exhibition will be a captivating and ever-expanding group of soft doll-like figurines by Sew N Sew. This series, entitled Indenti-kit 4 Collective Action, uses found objects, photos, text and textiles to create highly individual identities for Luton’s residents and visitors. This installation will evolve and change as the exhibition progresses and new Indenti-kit dolls are produced, inspired by conversations and experiences Sew N Sew will collect during gallery opening hours and as part of a pop-up event at Luton Bus station.
