As we become more and more disconnected with nature, art allows us to touch it, reconnect us with it, and remind us where things come from.
Manuela Garcia Aldana (Colombia) – Tatoo Amulets
The offering of hand poked tattoos will be made, as little amulets, that come from a series of drawings representing powerful plants.
Nadia Petković (Canada) – “Nature on Us” (series of drawings)
“This series explores the image of nature as something resilient and powerful, as a reaction to human domination and exploitation. The drawings intend to express a fallout of industry, war, and socioeconomic mechanisms in exchange for an idealistic place: where nature makes a comeback larger than any human presence. The notion of ‘anti-apocalypse’ is explored, through exaggerated organic scenes and the cosmos, hoping to illuminate the awe of the universe in comparison to our mere human presence.”
Julia Sprecher (Brazil) – on Guitar, will improvise with us
