Eli (salve) with ointment

ELI (salve) prosiect ointment projects 2005

Over the last 4 years ointment have initiated a number of public arts projects exploring the relationships between nature and culture in the rural, both here in west Wales and Internationally.

Spanning the seasons between summer 2004 and spring 2005, the artists of ointment will create the ELI (salve) project. In the following live art events they invite the public to participate in a series of walks to find extraordinary herbs in ordinary places and to join with them in making ointment, the ointment itself serving as a medicinal balm for the collective skin of a community and as a botanic and cultural map of particular geographies of west Wales. Also Simon whitehead and Maura Hazelden will take the project to Darmstadt in September 2004.
