Playfully dedicated to a squashier, wonkier world of wellbeing, WOnks are protest pillows/beanbags/cuddly toy-like sculptural hybrids made from 100% reused and reloved material.
They are made without a plan, not worrying about straight lines and instead concerned with bringing joy. Each WOnk is a unique call to stop denying pleasure for the sake of perfection.
Reframing “mistakes” and “imperfections” they are an embodiment of a disability justice/mad pride aesthetic, a catharsis to the harshness of existing in a neurotypical ableist society, made by an artist who is too tired to line up seams or sew straight lines.
WOnkS are an act of resistance and self-care. They are also completely joyful, fun, weird, wonderful, and beautiful.
