Artist, wanderer and activist Mori Sikora’s work explores the theme of ephemerality and explores the interconnectedness between the natural world and human existence. Sikora’s artistic process is an extensive exploration of natural materials (plants, flowers, natural extracts, dyes, fabrics, wood, branches). For this year’s Biennale of Graphic Arts, Sikora has created post-minimal sculptural paintings in the form of ritual banners. These “banners” are made with natural dyes extracted from plants such as hibiscus and indigo, and hang from branches. For Sikora, these branches are charged objects symbolic of the potential for the continuity of life and concurrently of the cessation of life. Her work also extends to the public in the form of workshops with various audiences: children and adults, people from all walks of life, to experience her work process and engage in meaningful discussions about sustainability, posthumanism and humanity’s relationship with the earth through this platform. All this can be expressed through the poetry of hitting a flower with a hammer.
