In repurposing her wheelchair to create fantastical art, Sue Austin reshapes how we think about disability.

Multimedia, performance and installation artist Sue Austin keeps a fascinating mission at the centre of her work: to challenge the idea of disabled as “other” and represent her experience as a wheelchair user in a brighter light. She does this by creating quirky, unexpected juxtapositions – bringing a sense of whimsy and empowerment to the discussion of disability.
