A performative and experiential research project relating to the empirical experience of the female body when in liminal space. Investigating an instinctual connection to the land, topography and hierophany.
Part I was the culmination of various private rituals and field research from sacred sites … this manifested as a 30 minute performative rite, in combination with a five channel sound piece using my own recordings from sacred sites … this being a one off act which took place at the Occulture Conference, Berlin, November 2018
This piece was deliberately undocumented, the printed votives made from ash, pomegranate juice, and blood are hand bound as an artists book.
I was also asked to contribute a piece of writing, as a reflection of this performance, by ‘Volupté – Journal of Decadence Studies’ published by Goldsmiths on the Winter Solstice 2018
Part II is a series of prints, based on fauna from ritual sites and mantic stains of the body – realised as mono blots and collagraph prints ..
Part III is a series of sculptural votive pieces, exhibited for the first time as part of Trans – States Conference in Northampton … http://trans-states.org/
