As a child, Dolly Sen was an alien in Empire Strikes Back. She knew then she would never know normal life. Her journey as an artist has taken her up a tree in Regents Park, to California’s Death Row, to the Barbican, Tower Bridge and the Royal Academy, Trafalgar Square, and up a ladder to screw a lightbulb into the sky.
Dolly’s creativity aims to put reality over her lap and slap its naughty arse.
Dolly is an award-winning writer, artist, performer and filmmaker. She has had 10 books published. Her subversive blogs around art, disability and humour have a huge international followingwww.disabilityartsonline.org.uk/dolly_sen_blog. Since 2004 she has exhibited and performed internationally. More recently she has been working on her Section 136 project. Section 136 is a radical mental health art-action programme where madness is questioned, and institutional monsters are confronted using art, love, rage and sheep.
