Vessel, The Mantras Room @ Rialto Theatre by Lia Haraki
The work belongs to a series of new works by the artist which focuses on the body of the viewer as a container/vessel of many bodies (mental, emotional, sensual, etc.), and through specially designed rooms, their activation is intended.
This first work will focus on the ritual body and will happen on the theater stage which will be isolated in order to function as a room. Each spectator/participant will be able to enter and listen to audio tracks following the style of Asian mantras, which are based on the idea that by repeating a thought/word, the statement they convey becomes real. With this in mind, the content of the specific mantras will be relevant to obtaining success and well-being in the way these concepts are generally perceived in western society today.
