time: 14u – 17u
location: KIOSK, Louis Pasteurlaan 2, Gent
We invite you for a reflective moment on what ‘rest’ can mean in a world on fire in which the notion ‘peace of mind’ is becoming a luxury and privilege.
What does the suffering of the Palestinian people and with them many, many other human and non-human beings in all corners of the world tell us about our relation to care for each other and our communities, our ever rush for productivity and the ever decreasing moments to contemplate?
In a performative setup, we’ll get together with artists that embedded some of these questions in their practice and reflect on our relation to work, to recovery and to how productivity determines our life. We will practice some of the rituals and scores suggested in the almanac and discuss how changing these habits also might change our relation to other fields.
Our guests for this afternoon are:
– artist Sandrine Morgante, presenting drawings and the audio of the interviews around burnout
– artists Chloé Schuiten & Clement Thierry will bring their painted mattresses in the context of Doing Nothing
– dance and shiatsu practitioner Anouk Llaurens will invite us to a deep relaxation ritual
Beside these presentations we will read, discuss and practice in the chapter ON REST.
This event is the third edition of Fair Practice, a sustainable dialogue / un dialogue durable, a series of encounters organised by State of the Arts and LaFAP.
In 2023, we cross our networks and bring together artists and art workers from all over Belgium around themes from the
FAIR KIN ARTS ALMANAC.
FAIR KIN ARTS ALMANAC
Mobilizing and voicing current issues from within the arts field to foster connectivity and relational perspectives of kin, this book addresses ecology, parenthood, the need to rest in a life that never stops, the urgency for space and infrastructure for artists, redistribution of resources, accessibility of the sector, artistic involvement in politics and much more.
