Alexa Raisbeck remembers shop assistants laughing at her because she couldn’t work out the correct change. It took her five years of searching to find out that her problems had a name: dyscalculia. Now she’s a successful artist.
Her current exhibition, Hidden, runs for three days next week in London and explores what it’s like to have an undetected non-verbal learning disability (NvLD).
Hidden weaves together Alexa’s Brainwrapped project and a project by Hungarian artist Edit Olah, entitled ‘Can you see yourself?’
- 28th June - noon - 9pm
- 29th June – 10:30am - 6pm
- 30th June - 10:30am – 6pm (private view 6pm-9pm)
It’s happening at Shoreditch Town Hall and admission is free. The nearest tube stops are Liverpool Street (20 minutes’ walk away) and Old Street, Exit 3 (10 minutes’ walk away).
Alexa’s website is at www.brainwrapped.co.uk .
Edited to remove the reference to Alexa being an academic researcher - she is in fact a research subject for research into dyscalculia. I misunderstood her email.
