  • This new exhibition, Williamson’s largest solo showing to date, features a brand new project ‘Inspiration Archives’, which has been commissioned by Attenborough Arts. Inspiration Archives brings together never before seen collections of objects, artefacts, ephemera, film footage and photography, which document the lives of several historically overlooked personalities. Characters include; Deaf wrestler Cain in Chains; Charlotte Waterton, granddaughter of zoological illustrator William Waterton, and paraplegic traveller and explorer ‘Parachute Susan’ O’Sullivan, alongside various other inspirational historic figures of differing professions and backgrounds.
    To accompany the ‘Inspiration Archives’ installation, Attenborough Arts Centre and Aaron Williamson have curated a retrospective of past solo and collaborative projects including film, performance, objects, text and photography.
