MATA PRESENTS – Still Keep Moving
September 29, 2017 - October 1, 2017
Gallery open Fri-Sun 10am – 10pm
Closing reception Sunday 10/1 11am—6pm
Still Keep Moving is a 3-day performance considering and examining the structures of grief that one builds for protection immediately after a loss or trauma and how those structures are torn down and rebuilt as they are processed and lived with. How in reworking the same materials the structures holding us release us.
Using basic materials to create crude structures representing different stages of grief, we aim to open a space of healing that can be as private as it is public and communal. All are welcome to come through at any point during open hours to help build and take apart our structures each day or to observe and spend time in a space meant for consideration, healing, growth, and remembrance. There will be a dedicated altar space for anyone & everyone to bring mementos, drawings, writings, or any symbol of a loved one lost to honor their life and memory. Sharing & conversation is encouraged, but nothing is required.
The building will finish and a reception held at 11am—6pm on Sunday. Brunch refreshments will be available.
