HOLD (TANNIN, EARTH, SOOT, RUST)







ARTIST Megan Kennedy
FERAL ECOLOGIES
Geraniums (Pelargonium), Weeds (Taraxacum), Eucalyptus
LOCATION Canberra, Australia


CONCEPT Layers of natural plant dyes, iron oxide, soot particles and earth sourced from Kennedy’s surroundings in Canberra leave their marks and bleed across cotton fabric. Rust and soot are abiotic materials that might be dismissed as by-products of human activity or the weathering of human structures, so ubiquitous they become inconspicuous. Meanwhile, the natural dyes were derived from Geraniums, Eucalyptus and Dandelions — viewed by some as weeds. Hold (Tannin, Earth, Soot, Rust) brings them together to examine the visual materiality of abiotic remnants and biotic phenomena, where the transformative nature of physicality, process and chance evokes a quality drawn from a landscape met with countless junctures of ferality and domesticity.
