Part apothecary, part apothegmary, Medicament For Your Predicament (in development), is a reflective, sensory workshop and feminist formulary compounding political pharmacopeias. – ointments and salves, tonics, gargles and powders to soothe our soluble and insoluble bodies.
Drawing together her botanic, sensory and social practices, Jones invites participants to join these hands on kitchen/garden/lab conversations and contribute further to her ongoing research around medicine + feminist futures.
From antidotes to ire, diuretics for disillusionment and cures for capitalism, Medicament For Your Predicament gently applies a drawing ointment to modern maladies and creates recipes for transformation.
This project is supported by the federal government through the Australia Council for the Arts, pvi collective and Blast Theory through a program instigated by Sophie Travers. Conceived with support from the state government of New South Wales through a Create NSW Performing Arts and Music Fellowship.
