The current video piece is a continuation of meetings between three dyers from Sweden, Russia and Finland. We met first time in Komi, Russia 2019 and started sharing our passion for plant dyes. Since then, we have been able to meet only online but have been able to collaborate through artistic working. Meeting in material is our first artwork published 2020 where we have examined dyeing as cultural heritage through joining the outcomes of our dyeing processes together. In this second artwork, Meeting in landscape we have concentrated in the poetic rhythm of the dyeing processes by bringing our three landscapes together. Our collaboration is ultimately about sharing and learning from each other’s
processes and thoughts about dyeing and cultures in our neighbouring countries.
