Metamorphosis – A project lead by Cabasa Carnival arts lead by Emily wood. This is a project which will hopefully continue in the near future but started as a Body painting project to explore mental health issues surrounding mothers and wanting to honour the transition which happens in a woman when she becomes a mother, but also exploring the implications of those huge transitions on mental health. The plan was to paint participants pre and post natal and create butterfly wings which would represent the power and transition. The photos here are of our dear friend and amazing dancer Adriana, designed and painted by myself and associate artist Kate Rothery.
