BY CAT JONES
Part apothecary, part apothegmary, Medicament For Your Predicament is a socially engaged artwork 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, the project contributes to a larger body of research around medicine + feminist futures. This residency includes development of reflective, sensory workshops, an ‘open pharmacy’ event with unique merchandise and a card game.
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 begin a chemical change.
