plant hydrosol encounter
"Self Care as Activism" was a conversation and sensory experience with the artist and psychiatrist/aromatherapist Dr. Florian Birkmayer, that explored place, the senses, self-care and the psyche.
The afternoon connected the work in the exhibition with an opportunity for participants to reflect on their own self-care, care for others, and their relationships to their bodies, environment, plants and animals.Using their own sensory knowledge, participants engaged in an exchange with Burack and Birkmayer, sharing healing aromas and tastes, and discussing properties and responses to varying plant essences.
