Oxygen Art Centre is pleased to announce Sacrificial Cabbage, an online contemporary art workshop series.
Artist S F Ho will facilitate an online workshop on Saturday, November 27, 2021 drawing on their research, which will explore the idea of medicine and how we come to define what we put in our bodies as healing or toxic.
Ho states, “Considering plant medicine and harm reduction models, I am asking aloud if we can get to a more complex understanding of how our bodies are affected both specifically and holistically by various agents and elements. I wonder how medicine can manifest within different relationships, objects and materials.”
Based in the unceded territories of the xwməθkwəy̓ əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, and səl̓ílwətaʔɬ peoples for the past eleven years Ho is cultivating a practice of wary sociality, never finishing books, and being sort of boring. They’ve recently published a novella about love and aliens called “George the Parasite” (2021, SPEC/FIC).
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 their website, www.oxygenartcentre.org.
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. The workshops will explore topics such as ecology, seed saving, and medicinal plants. Each workshop will be two-hours in length consisting of both lecture and participatory workshop.
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 the month of November 2021 and the beginning of December 2021 featuring Christina Battle, S F Ho, and Tania Willard.
Join artist S F Ho on Saturday, November 27, 2021 from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM PST (Zoom). Register to attend via EventBrite.
This program is generously supported by Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance.
