Aislinn Thomas

Aislinn Thomas is a disabled interdisciplinary artist. She gratefully works alongside and in the legacy of so many who out of necessity treat access as a space for creative acts. Aislinn is a white cisgender settler of Ashkenazic and UK descent. She lives in Unama’ki/Cape Breton, on ancestral and unceded Mi’kmaq territory. Her  practice includes video, performance, sculpture, installation, and text. She culls material from everyday experiences and relationships, creating work that ranges from poignant to absurd (and at times straddles both). Her recent works explore the generative potential of disability while pushing up against conventional standards of access.
Recent exhibitions include Draft Systems WRO Media Arts Biennial in Wroclaw, Poland; TALK BACK at Flux Factory in Queens, New York; and A distinct aggregation / A dynamic equivalent / A generous ethic of invention: Six writers respond to six sculptures commissioned by the Walter Phillips Gallery at the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Banff, AB.
