Vermont Studio Center 2020, USA
spatial wool drawing
The wool drawing floating in space resembles the topography of Vermont’s Brunswick Springs. The water, which contains 6 different minerals, is sacred to the Abenaki Native Americans.
Since the 18th century, when the white man began to exploit the springs for profit, the sacred area is said to carry a curse. While working on the setup, the Corona pandemic hit the USA. Due to the closure of Vermont Studio Center, the work remained unfinished. Had the protection spell once again prevented worldly concerns from claiming the sacred streams?
