The Woodford Academy is very proud to present ‘Ephemeral Threads’ a collaborative sensory and tactile exhibition by Academy ‘Artist in Residence’ floral artist Edith Pass & Blue Mountains photographer Jennifer Leahy for our upcoming open days on Saturday 1, 15 July & 19 August. The exhibition explores floral installation weavings that incorporate botanical and photographic materials. Edith’s visceral investigations touch on the subject of commemoration, giving tribute to the post colonial / Victorian women of the Blue Mountains. Jennifer’s photography explores ideas of historical decay embellished with remnant traces of grandeur.
Edith Pass is a floral and visual artist, with a background in print media, drawing, floristry and education. Edith runs a bespoke floral art and design studio based in the Blue Mountains called ‘Floral Ink’ located at The Woodford Academy since 2015. www.floralink.com.au Jennifer Leahy is a creative photographer based in the Blue Mountains. Jennifer works across both film and digital media creating imagery that questions historical reality, memory and folklore. Her interest and experience in photographic records and visual archives informs many aspects of her image making. www.silversalt.com.au Join Edith & Jennifer for the Exhibition Launch on Saturday 1 July at 1pm to hear more about the creative process’ behind this exciting collaboration.
