Mothers’ Sabbath by Julia Krupa

Julia Krupa; Mother's Sabbath








Time: 31.07.2021- 14.08.2021

Mothers’ Sabbath installation consists of a painting made of herbal pigments. Each herb has been harvested by the author. Chosen herbs are those which connect via slavic mythology or herbal practice to women’s reproductive possibilities. Some were believed to increase fertility while other were used by old herbalists in abortion practice. The war on Polish women’s reproductive rights, wich became a witch-hunt, is an issue of high importance for Polish and European feminists. But there also is a war on Earths fertility – plants are put in rows and sprayed with chemicals to increase incomes. We dig into our Mothers womb for coal  and other minerals. Women and Nature are burning on the same stake.
