What memories, desires, and burdens do we confide in the silent embrace of objects? In what orbits do we place ourselves, near or far from others?

The Workshops are a series of guided engagements with Para Site’s current exhibitions, ‘Soft breath’ and ‘Sounding Lines’, inspecting entanglements and interrelations in various means. Participants are invited to reflect on their personal experiences, take a moment to reset, and interact with the constellations of works using one’s own system of senses. The workshops unfold a unique dialogue with each exhibition.

In and around ‘Soft breath’, we delve into the intertwining realms of our mindscapes and surroundings. Guided by meditative exercises, slow looking, and interaction with various objects, we create private spaces for conversations with ourselves.

The sessions at ‘Sounding Lines’ focus on improvised body movement. Through acts of navigating, marking, and measuring, we contemplate our habit of setting boundaries and the connections within our interpersonal relationships.
