An Interactive Wheelchair Art Installation Is Taking Over The Perth Cultural Centre This Weekend
A local artist is taking over the Perth Cultural Centre this weekend with an interactive installation.
Presented by the Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, Bruno Booth’s Dead Ends and Detours invites passers-by to experience an obstacle course using a wheelchair, racing against the clock and channelling everything from the Paralympics and Evel Knievel.
The “sly-octane” installation demonstrates that “disability is not a dirty word”, and provides insight into the lived experience of physical disability.
The free installation is open to the public on Friday, Saturday and Sunday between 10AM and 5PM, and is suited for ages 8+.
