Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal health questions followed by a 30 minute interview with Artist Kim Kitchen

Kim Kitchen is a multidisciplinary artist working in audio and film as a result of a debilitating and transformative illness. She explores collective cultural understandings of the female body, its intersections with and presence within the natural world. This is evident through the inclusion of ritual in her work - particularly in To Re-convene // To Shoreline - which draws on her lifelong connection to the Primordial Mother, and to knowledge of her ancestral homelands of old Europe. This ongoing research and consciousness has deeply influenced her artistic practice, which has been largely tactile, focused on painting, sculpture, installation and performance.
Currently, Kim engages her practice of critical inquiry of body/land relations and the self-reflexive relationship between ability and artistic production through largely multimedia approaches. With significant changes in mobility, old spaces become unknown insofar as the
body must learn anew how to navigate through them. The familiar becomes unfamiliar: the body is tasked with relearning how to exist, reaching out in changed, renewed and ever-urgent ways through creativity.
Kim's community activism is inclusive, celebratory, and exuberant. In contrast, her work is introspective, thoughtful, and prompts quiet reflection. Now more than ever, interdependence is fundamental for this disabled artist.
