The new project presented in the Dizajn BWA Wrocław gallery, after its reopened is “You are not alone” which we called a postpandemic seance for one viewer.
You Are Not Alone is a self-help post-pandemic session for one person at a time. You will feel safe with us. We will give you tools for action and try to lift the burden off your shoulders. You will feel at home here with us. You will work on your breathing, nervous system and the emotional ecosystem of your body. You will cuddle up to yourself. Despite the solitary journey throughout the session, you will feel that you are not alone.
You may come back to us as many times as you wish. After watching the five tutorials with the large
amounts of Earth, Body, Water, Fire and Air, you will get a souvenir from us, on which we will put a
few stamps as proof of our love. The session arose from a need to comfort you and ourselves in the time of the pandemic.
You Are Not Alone is an island overgrown with serenity, neighbouring the social space Lifery which acts as an urban spa in the Dizajn gallery. Lifery Radio, a daily quadrophonic broadcast, is accompanying it – immersed in the practice of deep listening, allowing you to experience auditory landscapes and experiments in its changing bands.
