An elemental journey

Elemental: 2 artists, 4 elements, 6 weeks, 8 women: an experiential exploration of the elements through movement, site-specific artworks and meditation. Create a visual memoir of your elemental journey through earth, air, water & fire – and discover what they mean to you. 

Six site-specific workshops for women based around the four elements, which will be embodied, ephemeral and experiential. Artists Clare Whistler and Xaverine MA Bates bring their experience with a wish to explore in place earth, air, water & fire.

Two bookend workshop meetings to unfold and fold-up the experience will be held in The Music Room, 6 The Uplands, Lower Maze Hill, St Leonards TN38 0HL. The other four meetings will be in locations chosen as being most expressive of each element, so be prepared for weather i.e. the elements!

Xaverine and Clare welcome women who have an interest in exploring the senses experientially: by appealing to more than just sight, to include touch, smell, taste and sound. Drawing on the Greek Goddesses, the four humours, fairy tales, myth, archetype and much more, we will create impermanent artworks in the landscape, making and leaving traces through meditation, dance, talks, walks, art making, writing, assembling, sharing and imagining.

Explore the elements you most identify with and expand your awareness of the elemental around – and within – us all. Participants are invited to bring their own special journal to map this elemental journey.
