Description in Poem Form Written by Jenny Zander:
“From the depths that are sailed at night, the moon rises
She burns bright to find me
Only the brave ones go to such depths
The bad is not so bad when I’m hiding behind her magic
She says that our bodies tell our stories.
Where the past, present and future are all connected
Haste is not part of the natural rhythm of the universe
We are souls traveling infinite times
And through this we share so much
Now that I think about it, I have never seen a tree rush to grow.
Desde las profundidades que navegó de noche, sale la luna
Ella arde intensamente para encontrarme
Solo los valientes van a las profundidades
Lo malo no es tan malo cuando en su magia me oculto
Ella dice que nuestros cuerpos cuentan nuestras historias
Donde el pasado, presente y futuro están conectados
La prisa no es parte del ritmo natural del universo
Somos almas recorriendo tiempos infinitos
Y mediante esto compartimos mucho
Ahora que lo pienso, nunca he visto un árbol apurándose por crecer.”

About the artist: Jenny Zander
Through body art, photography and film work, Jenny reflects our many identities and movements. She paints on skin because it's art with a heartbeat. Photos sustain memories, films keep stories alive. It’s really important to showcase the power and beauty of people who have been historically misrepresented in art. To show black and brown, queer, trans, female-identifying folks in all their varying abilities and rawness, because they belong in any landscape and are existing in many ways.
There is a growing violence against the planet, Native lands and water. Reconnecting bodies to the Earth is resisting this violence. Jenny's art serves as a tribute to the fragility and resilience of humanity in relation to the natural world.
