Annelotte Lammertse: Third landscapes and the role of dye plants

Doctoral Project

Annelotte Lammertse, PhD in the Arts

The research focusses on dye plants and the way they can show us precarious and damaged landscapes. These plants have almost disappeared from our society and are only found in small and fragmented places. They form the ruins of our capitalistic landscape and are of great importance for the biodiversity and the quality of our environment. In this research, (international) collaboration will be set up between these kind of places, plants, people and their environment, beyond binary, anthropocentric and hierarchical paradigms. Through processes and actions of collecting and holding different narratives and stories about the places and plants will be looked at and produced. Sensorial experience, rhythmic temporality and assemblages will be connected to the processes of dyeing and weaving.
