Constructing versions of nature and the ‘natural’, 'Sacred Predictions' looks at mythologies of the feminine performed in social ritual and cultural rites of passage. Alongside a documentary style video performance, an intricate sculptural installation employs floriography (the Victorian language of flowers), and a DIY aesthetic via homely craft techniques. The successes and failures of the works’ attempts at realism betray a curious unnaturalness, reflective of the imposition of romantic ideals of the ‘natural’ upon nature and gender.
