Saint Hiledgard Inspired Event
Exhibition, Performance and Workshop ‘Three Forces of the Soul’
9th – 11th September 2016
Imperial Hotel Art Space, 80 Memorial Road, Eumundi, Qld Aust
Three women, myself, Singer Amanda Cole and Herbalist Heidi Merika joined forces to create a sensory experience during the Horzion Festival here on the Sunshine Coast Qld (Aust) in September.
Researching St Hildegard took me on a journey into my own heritage, something I have never given time to do. I had my DNA tested and found that my biological heritage is like a neat European Recipe it shows a circle over England, Ireland, Western Europe a dash of Scandinavian and a pinch of Finnish. From this I used process to explore 12th century colours and dying techniques, pushing myself to over lap and use repetition to spend time contemplating what these combinations of ancestry, cultural identity really mean for me as an Australian, this work feels like it’s the beginning of a completely separate body of work, that is still to unfold.
