A live performance of this work was presented at the Monash Faculty Gallery during Impact7, Intersections and Counterpoints, (international multi-disciplinary printmaking conference).
In the background is Jan Hogan’s large woodblock, Becoming.
Extracting dye from mistletoe and its host (eucalypt and casuarina) in order to screenprint and dye fabric formed the starting point of this work. From here a three-in-one garment (silk chiffon and silk jersey) was constructed, each wearer connected to the next via the sleeves.
