From the organizer:
Á Space invites you to our Open Studio from our second artist #SoloMarathon No.2 – Jo Ngo
This is an open studio where you can watch how the artists work . The space is still developing until July 25th. You are welcomed to join our working process, interact with the artists, and bring your own plants. Thus, you will be a part of our ongoing project.
About the Open Studio:
“We are all subject to mental strain in our lives, and periods of instability are only natural. However we often lack the means to fully assess any lasting damage, and we struggle to receive the support we need to address our issues and heal from them.
And so, to help us recenter ourselves and find our own equilibria, we come to this verdant glade of tranquility and repose, where our souls may take their ease, and our spirits may ride the currents of positivity, healing energy that flow around us. May the silence, living foliage, the soundscapes, the moving images, and the sessions of subtle healing, help sooth our minds and bring them to a place of equanimity.”
