A short film collaboration between Karan Jones and Amanda Magnano (graduating students of RMIT BA Textile Design), for a textile-based group exhibition in May 2013.
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. Artists: Claire Beale, Patricia Brien, Gabriella Ferrante, Kate Kennedy, Emma Lynas, Tasmin Pascal, Ria Soemardjo and Ilka White. Curated by Patricia Brien.
The film sought to document the rituals of each of the exhibiting artists in Spiritus Loci. It attempts to unravel the personal stories surrounding these individual interpretations, and explore the notion of connectivity to meaningful places in the context of textiles. The resulting outcome is part a document of events and an evocative reflection on place, meaning and ritual.
