About the event
The inspiration and points of reference clearly signal relationships to the body, the land, and in learning as central to this work. For Tanya, the significance of Indigenous women's relationships to plant medicines has also introduced an approach that looks to the seasons to determine materials and methods. For Hair Prints this means Tanya will now only work with berries to produce prints in the Spring and Summer.
Returning to the body, preparing together. This is enacted through breath and bodywork shared by project contributors. By undertaking this work in this way, alongside visits with the land, we are redetermining the parameters of what is required to do this kind of work and opening up necessary space for building long-term relationships through modes that are specifically relevant to the project itself.
