Claire Cunningham - Give Me A Reason To Live


Wed 4 May

“Stark [and] brutal with her customary integrity and conviction.”
★★★★★ The Herald

Inspired by the work of Medieval Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch, Give Me a Reason To Live explores issues of religion, in particular religious art, and the judgement of bodies, souls and quality of life.

Taking the form of a series of tests, of body and of faith, and set to a mesmerizing sound score, the work is a study of empathy. Claire creates what she describes as a live memorial to the disabled victims of the Nazi euthanasia program and the current disabled victims of the present UK government's so-called ‘welfare reform’.
