In April 2021, we welcomed the first of our SSW x Counterflows Caregivers’ Residency artists, Chris Dooks.

Chris Dooks creates performative-narrative works that are also disability strategies and place-making projects with ‘artist-as-healer’ themes. In the first weeks of his residency at SSW, Chris made sound-objects and pilgrimages.

In this short recording, he shares what he has been working on in the first weeks of residency, together with reflections on being an artist with caregiving responsibilities.
