‘It’s a sign of a good piece of art work, that people can find different narratives within it, it is so rare to be able to do that’
I think Nora Weller’s curation of the different narratives at work in ‘Seeds + Soul’ can be seen as a rally to that old and still relevant cry: ‘the personal is political’; showing us in many thought-provoking ways how the making and ‘receiving’ of art work can be a fruitful encounter with ‘the other’, a ‘looking into one’s soul’ that can sow the seeds of new growth.
