lighter life draws sonica layout free

a conceptual framework for performance, active observation and its benefits to the mind- a public and practice based exploration within consciously created circumstance:

Piotr Bockowski  – Anastasia Freygang

with sound by Cao and Paul Jones

Taking the principle of a life drawing class where observation leads to interpretation this format induces expanding space for concentration. By allowing time for the viewer to absorb the given expression of the performers it is the act of drawing that marks the inter-exchange between audience and artist.

First set by Piotr Bockowski with music by Cao for an act of beheading, composed of a series of compulsive gestures triggered by the sonic exorcism of CAO. She incarnates an ancient peruvian pre-Incan pre colonial empress performing musical human sacrifice on Piotr Bockowski extending his body into a neurotic pyramid

Second set by Paul jones in collaboration with Anastasia Freygang playing layers of electronica to guitar and samples of spoken word. The performance is dealing with self exposure, musing on human presence in poems and conversation. playing your brain

A living tableaux with a mind on its own where performers share their practice for the benefit of activating exchange and learning in communally attended sessions

an initiative of HIAS health in the arts

transforming environments- offering engagement levels- testing grounds for togetherness : contrasting entertainment

During our 4th holistic day, this time with a focus on NOURISHMENT , the ‘menue’ consists of sculptures, performances and installations as means for communication. We experiment with pathways that involve reformatting the given with efforts from artists and creatives from different disciplines.

HIAS health in the arts encourages thoughtful and creative transmissions of knowledge- for arts positive impact on society. Participative learning and multi disciplinary use of holistic elements challenge definitions of artists role and output as well as the character of the perceived moment.

no body knows reading

reading from the stoic principles On Shortness of Life by L. A. Seneca




having to mark a transition, to call upon a rite of passage

to set a point to grow further from there

leaving this behind and expose

some of its key moments,

of a time


in dispear

oblivious to this hurting

a will arose to battle this

to dance to this

and manifest a physical existence to these very times and feelings in metaphors

only a grasp of its full content can be sourced from my head alone

the moving image monuments describe the circumstance and condition

let to read breath and eye s focus, expression on the face and mannerism

in retrospective

in this for what I was I m glad I can re-access. share to re- access. say its ending.

cleansing for the paths ahead to be taken with a lightness close to innocence

one knows what is what and its time to give the times a last prayer a last call for showcase

the first to be fair

but the last

in relevance

with aknowledgments to all involved

to all once breathing besides me. knowing that eyes can meet unconditionally

in a french world and beyond


visual meditation at TOPOPHOBIA

topophobia visual meditation aformance 1

visual meditation is the video based practice of mezmerising intent offering guidance throughout timelessness. Anastasia Freygang performed an Aformance dealing with momentary concentration at TOPOPHOBIA london. accompagnied with a voice over stating the following :

I dont know what it is to be always wanting to allow time
to perceive and orientate
sniff it out in a way to
get it straight since straights are missing in these curves of the possible
where is time and will for concentration in these times

partial attention in the everywhere
feeding into the everything
so multitasking I dont dare to loose a glimpse
since movement
your breath
any presence
means beauty

for me
for us
if just we d leave it to develop
unfolding in time
exploring alive

can you hear the other existing
can you look into his eyes
allow his presence to maintain a stance within
always re-positioning

how fleeting

no need to make up your mind
just allowing to enter you for possible learning, possible awareness
for a love in it, a simplicity thats touching

apointing humanity appreciating creation

you you go go on
fast to shy away
fast to put the other first|  the flashing matters

do pro- create attention

now how things are seen to bend
to stretch
to foster momentum

there is a chance to perceive the now. Inevitable
points and points of life assembling
breathing times
in rhythms of a stomach’s inhale
of a twitch around the mouth
of ones eyes that see the given

see the given !
No rush times

observations for a mind to grasp its logic
beyond judgement, passing clouds in a sky ruling over us

akwnowledge its power
its existence strikes. Our all does have its effects
its aftermath
its rites unfold in the communal

butter fly logic your doings pair with intention of the mind

what is there in terms of guidance if there s no time to see a moments task
of transfer

a moments quest to rule the now

if we dont allow
if we dont allow

guidence quest from the pen of an activist
as opposed to the claims of a needy crowd

as opposed to a boredoms drive

ratteling minds are allowed

follow the breathing person, unfolding a truth in its own right
granting you permission, surely
we can gain valuable insight

a visual journey since visuality counts the senses can
bless the senses
grant them right

paying attention
free this is

broadening awareness
yours this is

in smallest details, with an ease of an open mind
