Body Mapping is a workshop where you explore body sensations by moving or staying still and then express yourself creatively on a body-size canvas by using art material. This is an individual journey with a collective group. See Gallery.
What do you do?
You will be guided step by step by me. You will be invited to warm up your body parts to start getting in touch with your body sensation. You may move on your own or with others. Once your body is ready, we will do Body Meditation where you will be invited to sit, or stand or lay down to deeply get into a body sensation. With a felt sense in your body, you will put this into a piece of A4 size paper. Then you may share what you have experienced by talking or just showing the picture you have drawn or you can keep it with yourself.
You will be invited to cut a canvas for your desirable size and then mark a body line with help of the other person. Once the marking is done, you will start translating the felt sense into colours and objects. You may occasionally come back to a felt body sense as it is important to create a map through your body sense rather than making a “nice” piece of artwork.
