Raman Mundair | Sow, Reap and Slowly Savour
Workshop

Fri 28 June 2019

The seeds were planted beneath our tongues
many moons ago
Now is the time
to reap
and taste
the language
Say their names
and slowly
Savour…

For Sow, Reap and Slowly Savour, poet and artist Raman Mundair will create a new work that will be recorded and installed as sound and text.

As part of the process, she offers an opportunity to women of colour and women with a lived experience of the immigration and asylum system via a workshop where they make a place setting for a woman – living, past or mythical. The patterns, text and design of the place settings will be influenced and inspired by Raman's work and draw from seeds, spices, culture, women's mythology and plants from Asia, Africa, the Caribbean and the Arab world.

The workshop will be followed by an action in the form of a meal in the space where Raman will invite the 12 participants to break bread and borders, and to contribute to the sound installation.
