Oxygen hosts online workshop series, Sacrificial Cabbage
Oxygen Art Centre is pleased to announce Sacrificial Cabbage, an online contemporary art workshop series taking place on Saturday November 20th, 27th, and December 4th, 2021.
Taking its name from a garden plant ravaged by slugs, Sacrificial Cabbage is a workshop series that invites three contemporary artists to share their practice with participants who live and work in the Nelson region and surrounding communities.
Artists Christina Battle, S F Ho, and Tania Willard will facilitate individual online workshops on topics including ecology, seed saving, connectivity, medicinal plants, and land-based practices. Each workshop will be two-hours in length consisting of both lecture and participatory workshop
Through diverse mediums, the Sacrificial Cabbage workshops will engage broader dialogues about climate change, disaster capitalism, land and food sovereignty, and harm reduction through creative and artistic interventions.
Christina Battle’s workshop, “Doing Things with Others (across distance): Considering Participatory Practice” draws upon pandemic instigated infrastructural shifts in participatory art regarding their artistic practice with seeds and community gardening. S F Ho’s workshop will explore the idea of medicine and how we come to define what we put in our bodies as healing or toxic.
The series will conclude with Tania Willard’s workshop on land-based artistic practice concerning Indigenous knowledges as it relates to the ongoing collaborative project BUSH Gallery.
Interested participants are invited to register for a workshop by visiting the following EventBrite links. A maximum of twelve (12) participants will be invited to attend each workshop. No previous experience necessary. Learn more information about Sacrificial Cabbage by visiting Oxygen’s website.
Sacrificial Cabbage is free to attend. Each workshop seeks sliding scale donations that will be given to non-profit organizations chosen by each artist. Workshops will not be recorded; however, a print and digital publication will be available summarizing the topics, resources, and discussions explored.
Sacrificial Cabbage is an online contemporary art workshop series hosted throughout November and December 2021 featuring Christina Battle, S F Ho, and Tania Willard.
