Amy Khoshbin and Jennifer Khoshbin: The Sun Seekers
Participatory Workshops at 1pm & 3pm
Studio A4, Upper Level
The Sun Seekers is an ongoing body of work to promote reconnection with the physical realm as a form of healing. Amy and Jennifer Khoshbin, a sister duo in the arts collective House of Trees in collaboration with Wildcat Ebony Brown are presenting a public program meant to dissolve the heavy weight surrounding us during the pandemic into a greater awareness of the body and how to sustain our energy to keep fighting for justice.
This public program will incorporate the audience into the Sun Seekers sci-fi narrative, which is an alternate world maintaining a direct correlation to our experience of the pandemic and the re-emergence and connection with the natural environment and each other. Visitors will be inducted to the Sun Seekers community through somatic rituals and be instructed on how to make their own healing reflective objects to take with them using provided materials and guidance from the artists.
Swale + PublicArtAction will be leading tours directly after. The Sun Seekers installation will be on view by appointment only until October 13, 2021.
