Here is a link to the catalogue with some beautiful words about the exhibition that I was so fortunate to be a part of. https://art-museum.unimelb.edu.au/resources/catalogue/performing-textiles-catalogue/
"There is more serpentine bling to be had in Ceardai Demelza’s The Goddess Dandelion 1–5; garishly coloured studio shots featuring a creature with a yellow head, green leaf-like limbs, and yellow cables for roots. Against a hot-pink backdrop, this multi-modal goddess performs essential tasks such as caging a leaf-blower and pouring a cup of tea. Shiny snakes entwine themselves around other props, including: a rake for sweeping leaves more effectively (and without the noise and pollution); a cage that houses the leaf-blower; and the goddess herself, in a love clinch. Cheap, mass-produced fabrics are enlisted here to perform in new and unexpected ways, telling stories that not only transcend gender stereotypes, but species boundaries. The humble dandelion might be experienced as a weed by some, but is here reimagined as a goddess, not a multi-armed Hindu deity, but a tentacular (if rather day-glo) Chthonian, an under-world entity that Donna Haraway would be happy to tangle with in her efforts to subvert the sky-god, ‘prick tale’ narrative of heroes."
