Thresholds

Authors: Marsh, Angela Eve

Abstract: Through a discussion of the five main theoretical domains that influence my art-making; biophilia, ecofeminism, foraging (recuperation), non-duality and sacred space, I explore the synergistic relations between my socio-ecological-political reflections and my art practice. I am interested in the intersections between activism and art, engagement and transformation, and the idea that art can be seen as a “social sculpture” to borrow from Beuys. Continually seeking alternative realities from the polarizing forces that dominate our (my) contemporary world-view and questioning the culture - nature divide, my text chronicles the connectivity between my art projects and my theoretical research, finally understanding the relationship between the two as fundamental to my creative process. The concept of the threshold is paramount, proposed as a meeting place or juncture between binary worlds; the intimate and the public, the secular and thesacred, culture and nature.
