The session on reiki concluded in a physical exercise to connect to the energy stream within your body

For the workshop around neurosceletal alignment by elena ferraro all participants moved further down the premises onto padded ground and platforms. The theraphist prepared an introduction sharing her skill and its results. the introduction was followed by a pair-exercise where by using the pendlum vibrations merge into matter.

Back in the gallery food is being served.  A break allowing time for interaction and possible extension of knowledge on topic.

The accupuncture session, introduced by lucie trinephi, brought about an exercise highlighting pressure points in the ear and its responsive meaning linked to organs.
She concluded into a shared experience in the salon, where everbody sat in a circle with a needle being placed in the head for a collective physical and energetic sensation.

CONSCIOUS ACT FOR TIME

petja ivanova is a multidisciplinary artist who is part of the board of HIAS health in the arts engaging herself in processbased realisations of how to improve quality time, making it come about poetically and nourishing for oneself and others.

 

She is handeling everyday life by incooperating fine tuning, aiming to allow a process unfold its beauty. Her methods range from the very conceptual to the logically applied.

 

Personal accounts on time, friendship and the possible meaning of art are here to follow:

 

i am preparing for the winter. the last time i did this with my cousins in the garage of my grandfather. we took a camping table and sat around it – peeling garlic, cutting carrots. we did it with our hands, we had a cup of beer and enjoyed each others company. when we filled the big jars with vinegar and water, my cousins boyfriend came along to close the lids. that was a masculine job. then my other cousins son brought some bread, sausage and home made paprika preserve, and we had dinner. our gathering for preservation purposes expanded. before we were done turning the jars up and down, my boyfriend and his friend returned from a field trip. the preservation turned into a hang out with friends. friendship. Aristotel described friendship as not feeling time passing when you are together. I can relate to that. with lisa sometimes i felt like floating above ground. it did not matter what time it was. friendship is our ally in the quest to save time from disappearing. and to save time from being wasted by appointments and the pace of the busiest – we have to create situations for friendship. circumstances for friendship are circumstances for satisfaction.

 

preservation is one strategy/technique to live  with the time that surrounds you. it is opposite to consumerist and divisive time which to some extent is actually a virtual time. like we know the begriff virtuelles wasser – virtuelle zeit ist nicht nur die zeit, die wir I’m internet verbringen weder die zeit die dort durch raum produziert wird. virtual time is physically, outside of you, not happening. virtual time has no reference to your place in the world – geographically and to the spot of the sun. virtual time is a freedom to get into the paradox of choice.

 

concentration living. what is live. live is basically boring- eating, cleaning. socializing. life is in our everyday action. actually not much is happening outside of it. taking care of one’s everyday (needs) is the best way to live in the present tense. consumerist time though aims at eliminating the everyday – blaming the ordinary to be peasantry. through consumption you have the possibility to experience something exceptional at any time because you’re not bound to real limitations and to necessities. through having the possibility on the exceptional you tend to loose the soulfulness of the returning everyday real. returning activities set your place – stabilize your existence, form rituals, the source of art.

Petja has participated in the HIAS oasis at viennafair this october by sharing methods for the deceleration of time. She had manufactured soap from pigsfat with her relatives in bulgaria and brought the pieces over, sharing them out to smell and feel, take home a piece of goodness – produced with love, time and in community.
