Artist Cibelle Cavali Bastos leads a workshop looking at our perception and understanding of the ideas of the self. In order to access inner technologies and kick-start a deprogramming process, in this open session the artist leads the group through internal observations of inner movement and their external manifestations. Cibelle Cavalli Bastos has a conceptual and interdisciplinary practice that includes performance, sound art and installation. Their work addresses the deconstruction and formation of identities and the ways in which our multi-selves interact with each other and our surroundings.
What if your body was a mere geometric shape
Unmarked Undressed of the gaze of another
Undressed of your own gaze that has been programmed by the world
That your so called intimate parts had non-conceived shapes
That what you call a breast or a torso didn't have that name
That it was just another random part of your own architecture
– Cibelle Cavalli Bastos, from Debinarizefix
This workshop is open to all.
