Where does mediation stop and madness begin?

Starts 12:00 PM

Ends 4:00 PM

Venue Alserkal Arts Foundation

Warehouse 50/51


In this deep-dive into exhaustive practices—losing (or finding) oneself in the repetition of labour—artist Nahla al-Tabbaa examines meditative intensity. In a state of isolation, with a few props at hand, participants produce (drawing, carving, writing) in silence over four hours. Working in tandem with variables within our control, and others outside it, expect to explore the spot where meditation stops and madness begins…
