Interventions: Gallery Reset

Jack Moyse

Earlier this year, Swansea-based photographer and artist Jack Moyse was invited to rethink the entire gallery space - both physically and metaphorically - after winning the Interventions: Gallery Reset open call in partnership with Disability Arts Cymru.

New and existing works from Jack’s project You and I will be on display throughout August, accompanied by a programme of events and performance pieces.

You and I is an introspective documentary series following a young artist attempting to understand the physical and mental impacts of living with the disability with which he was diagnosed aged 17. His reflections form the basis of a narrative that encompasses some of the many issues people living with debilities encounter including romance, parenthood and prejudice.

Based primarily in photography, the project questions ableist attitudes from the viewpoint of the lived disabled experience, offering insight into the life of a marginalised group often overlooked by society.

Interventions: Gallery Reset is a series of gallery ‘takeovers' made possible with Art Fund’s ‘Reimagine’ grant, providing new opportunities for artists to experiment, challenge and ask provocative questions, with a focus on themes such as identity, migration, gender, social inequality and the environment.
