A nice irony then that this show of her work at Annely Juda should take her to China of all places and remote society in the country’s far south- western corner, Yunnan, where paper is still made from plants, indigo grown and shamans of the Dongba religion of the Naxi people still record their scriptures in pictographic script using these materials (which also, intriguingly, find their way In her researches for her work Sigrid Holmwood has always focussed on the ways in which the handmaking of materials gives meaning to and resists the alienation caused by an into traditional medicine). Holmwood’s work, moreover, makes use of just these same materials and it gives to the record she has made of this strange journey, a tender, quietly observed quality that is refreshingly unmannered and thoughtful.
