let's talk about it
In September 2020 this whole project started out with the question ‘Can art be a spiritual practice’. I wanted to find out about all the ways in which it possible could. Therefor I let myself be inspired by the experience and working methods of other artists all throughout art history to the most contemporary ones. During this search I found out that I wasn’t the only one wondering… It looks like spirituality is on trend. Are we in a collective battle against meaninglessness? Or is this more like a fashionable form of movement? We talked about it, together. And I will continue doing so.
My name is Laila, I’m a young performance artist from The Netherlands.
I am currently researching how contemporary art and (new) spirituality relate to each other…
I keep repeating these questions in my head ‘can art be a spiritual practice?’ Or ‘Can a spiritual practice be art?'
Whillest searching for sources to find some possible awnsers on the web, I came across you...
I would love to meet you (in person or by wireless devices :) ) to ask you some questions, and go deeper into some of your personal researches….
