PLACE, RITUAL, MATERIAL: MELBOURNE (SPRING 2012-13)
PROJECT: Spiritus Loci
Spiritus Loci is the collaborative project designed and curated by Patricia Brien as part of her MA (Design) Textiles. Eight Melbourne-based textile/fashion designers & artists of various specialisations, sought individual relationships to local meaningful nature spots throughout the season of spring using the material qualities of hemp and the narratives of place. Artists: Claire Beale, Patricia Brien, Gabriella Ferrante, Kate Kennedy, Emma Lynas, Tasmin Pascal, Ria Soemardjo and Ilka White.
The film sought to document the participants' rituals and is a reflection on place, meaning and textile artefacts.
A short film collaboration for Spiritus Loci shot and edited by Karan Jones and Amanda Magnano.
