House Plant

“When she read my name Weeping Willow out loud, she said she felt sad, too.”

Each Other’s Medicine.

Each Other’s Medicine  is an interactive story-installation of a retelling of the Greek myth of Persephone. This story is hand embroidered across and told by Weeping Willow, White Poplar, and Pomegranate, three plants that grew in the garden of the ancient Greek Underworld. The rhizomatic and nonlinear nature of plants is reflected in their storytelling; direct routes are rare. They want you to know about their friend, Persephone, and what happened when they met her.

In the spirit of the oral storytelling tradition of Greek myths, Each Other’s Medicine will close with a collaborative public reading of the story, led by Cicelia Ross-Gotta, at Public Space One June 26th at 4:00 pm.
