Online zoom practical session

Artist Sofa Skidan presents a performance/practical session focused on living psychological and emotional experiences in the virtual space, something which has become the new reality in this time of self-isolation.  Not an invitation to relive or rewrite the experience of the transfer of one’s social life (including its emotional and sensual aspects) online, the performance will encourage participants to look within and see how their conscious selves have changed in the current circumstances.

Skidan believes that the excess of online events and the redistribution of resources from the outer to the inner dimension represent an attempt to correct viscosity. Entering the matrix does not represent an affirmation of humanity, but its loss. In connecting to cyberspace, humans do not penetrate it but are captured by the space and experience a vulnerability of connection that affects sensibilities.

Participants will be invited to try some meditation and physical exercises that should help them distribute their resources. These practices can (but don’t have to) take participants into the world of their consciousness and psyche, which have been spatialized and transformed into a landscape where the inner has turned into the outer.Participation does not require any prior preparation, however registered participants will receive instructions before the event.
