Luiza Prado de O. Martins / Obaro Ejimiwe - Notes to the Seers, Queen Annes Lace

Season 1, Episode 3,   Jan 12, 03:35 PM

The final episode from artist Luiza Prado de O. Martins’ series, Notes to the Seers, explores the plant Queen Anne’s Lace.

In this three-part series, listeners are invited to encounter artemisia, Queen Anne’s Lace and rue, guided by the artist’s voice  within a soundscape created by Obaro Ejimiwe.

These three plants grow wild both in the Americas and Europe; vegetal material travelling across geographical, political, and cultural borders. This sensorial encounter revolves around tasting as a form of relation, capable of materialising a connection between human and plant beings, and of nurturing forms of queer kinship and healing. 

Simultaneously it entails a process of assimilation and integration, where consumption becomes the currency that governs perception—resonating with the colonial power relations that manage the porosity of national borders.
