Wolf in the City (Poland)
An expression of wildness, Wolf in the City contemplated the connection between land, body and instinctual knowing. Migrating through a foreign landscape (the city of Wroclaw, Poland) a lone wolf-woman seeks her place in the world. Listening for the call of the instinctual knowing self she summons the wisdom of the female body to meet her face to face. In exploring the felt sensation of the body and its interaction with the external world this evocative work captured the challenge of seeking the ‘instinctual’ within contemporary living.
Working in collaboration with photographer Arkadiusz Susidko, this project shared through film, photography and performance, research gathered during Georgina's artistic residency at ArtLOKAL Gallery (Wroclaw, Poland). It was inspired by the writing of Clarissa Pinkola Estes author of Women Who Run With Wolves, interviews conducted with other women, on-foot explorations of the city, encounters with the body, and anatomical explorations that focus on the pelvis as a channel through which the instinctual is received and experienced – connecting external landscapes to inner emotional life.
Presented first at ArtLOKAL Gallery, Poland, extracts were later presented at Artists! Reveal Yourself! at AE Harris, Birmingham. The project now looks to welcome Artist-in Residence opportunities to find new wolves and new cities to 'wildly' explore. Invitations open to international photographers/filmmakers wishing to collaborate.
