HOLDING SPACE ACROSS CRIP TIME: Leah Clements & Kyla Harris



HOLDING SPACE ACROSS CRIP TIME is a series of interviews between Leah Clements and other artists, curators and art workers, for whom navigating disability and intersectional struggles within an art context is an integral part of our practice. These conversations explore each person’s work, alongside a common thread of holding space for one another across ‘crip time.’. Asking the question, ‘How do we hold space for one another through crip time?’ involves enacting relationships within a flexible and responsive timeframe.

This three-part series features conversations with Rebekah Ubuntu, Taraneh Fazeli and K MacBride, and Kyla Harris.

Filmmaker, artist, writer and activist, Kyla Harris speaks with Leah Clements about the power of representation in relation to disability, making work accessible, the importance of disabled/crip community, and her recent reality-tv-style film made in collaboration with Lou Macnamara.

This interview comprises a video and a transcript. The video is captioned and has BSL interpretation. This conversation took place across Spring 2021.
