Artist and researcher Sarah Blissett explores the connections and flows between nature and the human body.
This series of adult learning workshops forms part of How Nature Builds, Modern Art Oxford’s ongoing project offering informal participative experiences around the themes of nature, material processes and art.
This spring, participants will explore the relationship between human bodies and nature, from outside to inside and the flows between, as well as material processes and bodily transformation. Workshops will take place at both Modern Art Oxford and Wytham Woods.
Sarah Blissett is an artist, writer and researcher at the University of Roehampton working in fields of performance, art and ecology. Her interdisciplinary research works with algae to consider materialities of cooking, tasting and digesting performance. Blissett creates installations, workshops and performances that explore ecologies around food and energy-exchange through shared making. Interconnectedness and nourishment are central to her practice. Current projects include an ongoing series of cooking collaborations with seaweed and The Growing Puppet Project, playing with cycles of re-animation and growth.
