Radical Ecologies limited edition scent from the Somatic Drifts series.
Radical Ecologies is a distillation of concepts combining deeply personal experience of temporal transgressions of body and mind and transformation through grief. This work is influenced by a body of research on human plant relationships, vegetal philosophy, multi-species sensory signaling.
Combining earth, oceanic, botanic, animalic* elements with the female body in the form of the artist’s own tears, this composition is designed to change over 24 hours and longer from evolutionary beginnings to the post-human. It evolves from a fleeting Matsutake head note to a complex heart of Beeswax, Milk, Ambrette and Seaweed before long lasting base notes of Ambergris and Musk.
This limited edition of thirty comprises a symbolic box setting signed and editioned by the artist, printed epitaph, a glass and black rubber dropper, and delicately pale, green liquid (30mls) in a violet glass bottle designed to preserve it over a lifetime.
Radical Ecologies premiered at Perth Institute of Contemporary Art in 2016 interred in a ceramic urn and base within a concrete text epitaph. The Radical Ecologies epitaph is featured in Now, Past, Later limited print publication edited by Maxwell Williams and distributed by the Institute of Art and Olfaction.
