About the event

Between the Fabric and the Plant: How to Fix the Void

Presentation and Discussion with Art and Biology Residency recipient Eugenia Resnik

How does an old linen cloth connect people to their homeland? One way to answer this question is by exploring the connections between a fabric and a plant through observing the remnants of the transformation of flax into linen. At the intersection of the arts and biology, visual artist Eugenia Reznik conducted a research and creation residency to discover and delve into these remnants as both a scientific and artistic object. This project is a collaboration with the Institute of Biological Chemistry, the School of Biological Sciences, and the Department of Arts at Washington State University.

We warmly invite you to join the presentation closing the residency. We will share the outcomes of this project and discuss the promising avenues ahead. Your participation is welcomed as we collectively explore the unfolding narrative of artistic and scientific explorations.

The residency is generously supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.
