Cailtin Franzmann

To the curve of you

Working closely with collaborators from different disciplines and with the particularities of sites, Franzmann creates participatory works which take shape around slow practices, conversation, critical listening, and collective forms of care. Co-commissioned with TarraWarra Biennial, To the curve of you is a series of sonic and relational artworks focused on the movement and connections of plants, people and microbes. The project experiments with gardening, foraging, fermenting, and flower essences as embodied processes. The IMA iteration of the project is unique to the urban context of the gallery and to plants that are ‘wild’ and medicinal within the city environment. A selection of displaced plants that survive on disturbed and untended land will co-mingle with existing plants in the IMA garden.
