Indigo and Morinda (a labour of colour)  

Indigo and Morinda (a labour of colour) is a new moving image installation by Australian-Balinese artist Leyla Stevens.

The work engages with histories of textile production in Indonesia by staging speculative and performative narratives around ideas of mysticism, healing and witchcraft that surround plant dyes. The video reflects upon two colour fields – indigo blue and the red rust from the morinda plant – each personified by a female performer, who weave a series of embodied gestures and voice between them.
