Sue Austin, an artist from the core.

A power chair simply makes her self-empowering choices visible. And her new, fresh, amazing narratives heal the implicit bigotry that plagues and paralyzes most bodies – especially those labeled ‘normal’ yet deeply challenged when it comes to many activities children relish, such as singing, dancing, running, hugging… The limitations that were in the eye of the beholder only vanish with each swirl she takes.

Kudos and thanks.

Dice ‘Ho dovuto inventare di sana pianta le mie narrative’. L’ha fatto per tutti noi, perché osiamo incarnare i nostri sogni di libertà corporea, ovunque e comunque noi siamo.
