Colour Localities, Pakhuset, Denmark (2020)

 

This work is the culmination of a three month residency at Kunstkollektivet8b.

With an ever-present wariness of climate disaster, Andia’s work forms a portfolio of imagined futures. She envisions extreme solutions to environmental problems, such as reverting to prehistoric lifestyles or leaving the earth altogether in an arc-like space craft to avoid natural disaster which surely awaits us. These ideas culminate into hand woven images. Cloth is a basic need when it forms shelter, and a way of preserving histories (true or false) when pictorial. Each colour in her tapestries are hand dyed from plant life which she has foraged from her local area. By exploring potential futures through ancient and sustainable mediums, Andia aims to raise thoughts about the way human lifestyles evolve through time, and how we may ourselves adapt to stay in tune with both our immediate surroundings, and our wider environment-Earth.
