Herbal Tea Labo

For the duration of the residency at AIRY in 2019 I have invited the audience to participate in tea sessions loosely based on Ukrainian herbal rituals. The residency culminated in an exhibition of an installation of dried medicinal herbs gathered from the participants and on walks around town, as well as fermented drinks  — all informed by the conversations during the tea sessions. The fermentation bacteria broke down the plant ingredients into easily digestible nutrients and transferred energy to their next consumer in the food chain.

Kupala

Kupala is an annual festival of contemporary art that celebrates nature, participation and creativity.   Since 2016, the Kupala festival has shown performative and participatory works by a range of international artists, all examining the relationship between the nature, science and art. The festival’s origins date back to pagan traditions of marking the summer solstice in Eastern Europe and Scandinavia.
