June, Amsterdam 2020.
Collective indoor art event to reconstruct the way of how we can re-connect with people during and after times of social disability, uncertainty and fear of physical touch. It is based on togetherness, and body-mind awareness grounded in the materiality of clay.
During JUNE 2020, 53 citizens of Amsterdam accepted my invitation to meet online and build with clay their new BRAIN Salad Bowl.
The project was a total success. Despite the physical distance, the fact of making together and touching the same material at the same time gave us a the space for empathy and togetherness; as a result a special bond was created, and that's what makes the project a success!
This event was granted by AFK and clay sponsored by Keramikos Center. It was totally free of cost for all participants.
