Artist Statement: HER ANIMAL INHERITANCE is an on-going poetry collaboration between Alissa Hattman, Sara Jackson-Holman, and Tai Woodville, exploring themes of memory, emotional inheritance, and wild femininity. This video poem was created during a three-day artist residency at the historic Sou’Wester lodge in Seaview, Washington. The filmette examines the burden of transgenerational pain, as well as the healing alchemy that can come from solidarity, support, and shared process.
