Zia Ismail 

During her performance, Zia continued development on her concept of CO-EXISTENCE. Laying up the hand- cut and painted pieces of cardboard, she has built up a landscape to accentuate the relationship between nature and humans.

The performance ended by writing a one liner quote on the artwork to make audience think and reflect.

Zia Ismail, an architect by education and practicing artist, her artwork is driven by her love of nature and her in-depth observation of details.

 

Ivan Bondarenko & Valeriy Petrichenko 

in their live mural painting, they have been engaging the viewers by creating a surreal landscape, bringing a hyper-real image and the otherworldly elements, hidden beneath the surface of reality.

 

Yasmin Sinai

THE GARDEN OF PARADISE  is a cheerful floral installation, in the middle of the Courtyard, created by Yasmin to be the nest for the birds made out of recycled paper by participants during her workshop. 

The Garden of Paradise is a place for enjoyment and delight and public interaction.

Yasmin Sinai is an artist and environmentalist; she creates sculptures out of recycled paper, often as part of larger installations. 

 

Helen Spei

Hand-cut face patterns, large masks out of carton and wooden sticks are what Helen Spei brings to her workshop.

THE CREATIVE BODY 

Came up from own research in movements, possibilities, and bondage of the body and the body within space. How movements are, or not connected with the mind.

The Creative Body found ancient performing arts traditions which connect movements with the mind through hidden philosophy that is deeply rooted in the sub consciousness... which is slowly getting forgotten.

Great body awareness and physical strength are kalarippayattu. Connection with macrocosmic energies and rituals is Odissi dance.
