Vernissage Miah Flowers

 

Feminism, bodies, gender, their diversity and the beauty behind – these are important themes within Miah Flower’s work.

Miah started to make art from an early age and it eventually became for her, the way to express and release emotions. Within her journey to accept herself and figure out who she is, it was a tool to get to know her body and emotions. It allowed Miah to see herself from an artistic point of view.

About Miah Flowers artwork

Since Miah discovered shibari, she learned new ways to accept her own body using art as a tool to process her experiences. She realized that, besides the heteronormativity people might see in many scenes at first glance, there is much more queerness and body diversity in shibari then expected. However, this diversity is rarely represented in art.

With her series  „diversity in ropes“ Miah Flowers wants to show that it is possible for everybody and every body to be in ropes, to be beautiful and to be represented.

Shibari installation & performances „diversity in ropes“

 

Installation

The performance by Sawa complements the exhibition with three models becoming part of the display. As live installation they are going to be integrated into the venue for the duration of an hour, open to communicate and exchange, as well as embrace what diversity in ropes signifies for them. The audience is invited to interact with the models and their rigger in their respective disposition, while experience and witness consent, its fluidity and anchoring power through time and space.

Gold

Drawing inspiration from the Japanese tradition of Kintsugi. Kintsugi (金継ぎ, „golden joinery“), also known as Kintsukuroi (金繕い, „golden repair“), whose philosophy treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.

Each artist paints, to co-create, heal and recreate what was broken, distorted, tormented or shattered, as part of their narrative and collective ancestry, returning their collaborative joy back to body, mind and soul.

Performance by Bishop Black (model) & Caritia (rigger)

 

 

 

 

Rope meets soul

This performance lives at the intersection of shamanism and bondage, focusing on the spirit and how the mind can be set free from the body. As shaman Ron Hades will guide you to the door of your inner universe and open it for you, hold the space so you can enter and exit safely. I use the Way of Water to touch your dark emotions, and go into the shadow. Through this Way I will lead you to reproduction, creativity, movement, change and manifestation. We are repelled by pain and fear because these are an indication of separation. Pleasure opens our energy centers, whereas pain and fear close them. The Ritual will use elements from Mother Nature to pull the spirits closer to the Earth in order to reach a more open state of consciousness.
