This dress was made during the first lockdown in Victoria as an intuitive response to the musings and mental wanderings that arose during this period. It is a narrative and a context responsive work that led me to think deeply about how we respond to challenges; where we garner our resilience and where our capacity to deal with challenges comes from. It was made at the same time I was researching for the ‘Landscape Familia’ project and become a trigger for a shift in the focus of this project; from representations of the external lives of my ancestors to reflections on the genetic, psychological and energetic inheritances they have passed down through the generations.
