Artists using ancient healing beneath our feet
Artist Creative Process
As practicing sculptors and ceramicists with backgrounds in healing and bodywork, we are interested in exploring the intersection of these embodied arts. As derivatives of touch, connection between two entities, human or otherwise, is paramount. There is a special dialogue shared in that moment, one that requires stillness and receptivity of body and mind.
Circulate invites you to detour from the usual linear, concrete footpath, to instead quietly follow the spiral trail laid before you. Still your mind, take a breath and become aware of physical sensation. Spiral inward, then outward. Feel the park around you, feel your feet, feel the space between and the space within.
Inspired by the ancient wisdom and teachings of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) whereby 'pebble paths’ were utilised as a form of reflexology.
So please, remove your shoes, tuck your thoughts inside them, and listen to your body. (Your body knows best.)
