In the interactive installation, Paradise, a secluded shed is laden with handcrafted textile flowers, each individually made by artist Clara Martin.

The flowers are an invitation for visitors to cut and take Martin's work, an ephemeral artwork expected to disappear over time in response to this harvesting. The act of sewing and reaping flowers speaks of the beauty and horror of folk tradition, allowing the audience to participate in a new folklore as part of this festival.

The Unconformity acknowledges the palawa people as the original and traditional custodians of lutruwita/Tasmania. We commit to working respectfully to honour their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this land.
