Anita Cazzola


Anita Cazzola is a textile and installation artist currently based in the Annapolis Valley (Mi'kma'ki). Her work inhabits the intersections between textiles, wild plants, geography, and the built human environment. Exploring the material and metaphorical complexities of cloth and plants, Anita reconsiders the destructive assumptions of decay and disintegration as means of resistance, reclamation and healing. Her work is cumulative and generative, with appreciation for plants existing at the forefront. Anita uses natural dyes as a means of amplifying the voices of plants growing in “Sad spaces” (spaces damaged by human action). Demonstrating radical power through generative disobedience, plants in “Sad Spaces” share their wisdom in the simple act of being themselves.
