The Power Of Witness

by Viktoria Vidali on June 15, 2017

in Great Things To Share

“There is power in witnessing the story of someone’s body, in representing the truth of their form. Even surfaces have stories to tell; their contours tell us of the world that lies beneath . . . I want to tell the stories of bodies from every walk of life. We are presented daily with a relentlessly homogenous view of the perfect human body – preferably thin, white, young, and female – as though that is the only body-story worth telling. As though no other stories matter.

“But all our stories matter. Our stories connect us, even our unspoken ones. Perhaps especially our unspoken ones.” ~ Canadian artist Sarah Marie Lacey. [Image: “Pink Dawn,” drawing by SML).

I grew up loving wildflowers. During the 40s and 50s there weren’t many other flowers available in the mountains of eastern Kentucky. I also grew up loving color and I was particularly attracted to red. Imagine my disappointment when I discovered very few red wildflowers growing in my mountains.

Memory

Go deep into memory,
not like an excavator with a pick and shovel,
but like a pioneer, absorbing from a high ridge
a flower-filled valley that on its far edges
reaches the sea.
