- Demonstration: Linda Brant, on her Project: Honoring:
”My current art practice is an exploration of the concept of honoring. Honoring human and non-human animals can take many forms ranging from traditional burials and furnerary rituals to everyday acts such as sharing stories, pictures and memories. This diversity is reflected in my art work, which includes sculptures made from bones and found objects, photographs, interviews, field work, mapping and participatory pieces.
On Saturday, I invite all of you to help me make a map of honoring, as you understand it. Everyone will contribute something to the map. You might contribute something written – such as a poem, quotation or story. Or, you might draw, paint or sketch something. You might even contribute something like a small sculpture made from paper, clay or bone. You can work directly on the map, or pin your piece to the map.
The medium you use is up to you. You can interpret the theme of honoring in any way that you like. I would encourage you to make something small, since all of the pieces will be assembled on a map which is about 36 x 42 inches. Bring whatever materials/supplies you like to work with. There are no limits or restrictions.”
