Radical Ecologies is an inaugural, limited edition scent from the Somatic Drifts series.
This miniature olfactory ecology combines earth and ocean, botanical and animal species with the female body and the artist’s tears moving from evolutionary beginnings to the post-human.
Wet, earthy, floral, oceanic, animalic. Radical Ecologies travels from a fleeting Matsutake top note, expanding a complex heart of Beeswax, Ambrette, Seaweed, Churned Milk into long lasting base notes of Ambergris and Musk.
Created in an edition of thirty, each 30 mls of pale green liquid is bottled in miron violet glass, accompanied by a dropper, a bespoke card of concept poetics, and in a presentation box with layered symbology signed by the artist.
As an artwork, the scent is currently exhibiting at Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, discretely installed on a black wall, in a black ceramic urn with a soft touch glaze, and accompanying large scale text in black vinyl.
*contains animal byproducts of beeswax and human tears
