Performance ‘Empathy, Connection, Play’ at Lethaby Gallery

2018

The performance for the opening of the exhibition ‘Creative Unions’ brought the conjoined pieces of the ‘Empathy, Connection, Play’ collection into a live performance in the gallery context.

These pieces are designed to invite for an therapeutic exploration and reconnection of mind and body. Once the garment brings together two people for interaction, the selfexploration extends to an engagement with this individual accompanied by a constant “checking in” into one’s own physical and emotional reactions, one needs to adapt, follow, reject or “empathize” their movements and actions accoding to the other person.
