We are blessed at The Sound Temple to have Jane Ziemons join us as a selected exhibiting artist in residence to host workshops, artist talks, and demonstrations here in the Perth Hills as part of our annual ‘Common Threads Woven Through Community’ Project.
Jane Ziemons is a current Master of Arts by Research student at Edith Cowan University working in an interdisciplinary practice.
Ziemons applies a meditative approach to her arts practice which encompasses installation works, narrative textiles and traditional printmaking techniques. She has developed a labour intensive practice that values concentrated research, experimental mark making and deep reflection.
Having spent three decades travelling through a variety of locations including the UK, Africa, North America and Australia, Ziemons has a deeply emotional approach to her work and considers the creation of art to be akin to the making of a new home in a foreign land. She thoughtfully creates work with the intention to provide the viewer with a moment of deep connection to cloth, the everyday and the self.
Her current research examines the subtle ways in which art of the everyday can bring about moments of mindfulness.
Common Threads Woven Through Community is a month long community engagement project which includes topics of integrating sustainability, creativity, and traditional hand-crafted wisdom of the ages.
Our 2020 theme embraces the inter connection of our living world – the seen and unseen “The Pollination of Life” exploring the underlying connections between artists, creatives, sustainable enterprises and movements. As we all carry a thread that collaboratively weaves the health and wellbeing of our collective future on this planet.
These events are designed to share art and craft forms and exchange knowledge, to open participants up to a new way of life, they encourage the questioning of our thought patterns, they support the dissolving of old belief systems bringing a sense of belonging. You will feel deeply inspired by being part of a continuing impulse of considerable change.
