This work on view at Wh:eat Cafe was created in response to the landscape of care and women's responsibilities during the pandemic. I was drawn to thinking of the woman that came before us, that provided and nourished us. Those women that created real change for the next generation. Our well being and health are at the centre of it . They promoted care as part of our everyday life and that should be recognised and appreciated.
I believe there shouldn't be an imbalance of responsibility and we can all have an individual impact and responsibility to bring kindness and care into our everyday lives. My own personal heritage stems back to Govan so I felt a personal journey of exploring and honouring this in the artwork.
This work got shaped along the way navigating through current circumstances and involving contributors to share their stories and create work as part of this public display. I wanted to consider the work of mothers, women that gave , the expectations of gender and the politics involved in this.
From the Artist
I'm an artist, working across photography, collage, sculpture and live events. For example, bringing people on curated walks, like the one featured here.
I am very curious about how we use our senses. My projects raise awareness of our own senses. For Woven in Govan, And it's micro-commission, seven artists were to highlight or respond to women's experiences during the pandemic.
Covid-19 has taught us that the health of all life on the planet is connected – humans, animal, plants, entire ecosystems
all mutually dependent.
This all happens here in Moogety garden; growing, cooking, eating together in an Open garden.
