Medicament for your Predicament

Part apothecary, part apothegmary, Medicament for Your Predicament is a reflective, sensory workshop compounding political pharmacopoeias – ointments, tonics, gargles and powders to soothe our soluble and insoluble bodies.

Drawing on artist Cat Jones’ unique botanic, sensory and social practices, Medicament for Your Predicament contributes to a larger body of research around medicine and feminist futures. Emerging from a Create NSW Performing Arts and Music Fellowship this project is the 2019 recipient of pvi collective and Blast Theory’s international residency exchange supported by the Australia Council.

From antidotes to ire, diuretics for disillusionment and cures for capitalism, Medicament for Your Predicament gently applies a drawing ointment to modern maladies, creating recipes for transformation and queering medicine. Framed by the ethics of autonomy, justice and beneficence the process aims to share intergenerational and cultural knowledge, embody care and create a chemical change. In addition to this unique workshop experience an open studio will also be offered each day during Adhocracy.
