living with a landscape theyfriend pillow

Landscape theyfriend pillows are a set of pieces that arise from self-awareness and alertness as an emotional enhancement, believing those as essential for a common grounding and needed for a clearer understanding of ourselves.

The fabrics I’ve used were offered to me by Adem Elahel artist specialized in 3D graphics, a field in which he collaborates with artists and musicians. Driven by a strong interest in the creation of strong and disturbing images, his work always arises from an experimental approach. Through this series of fabric patterns, Adem aimed to catch the beautiful mysteries that reside in nature, complete harmony without contradiction, like an embrace between life and death. Mixing photography and CGI, he extracts the skin from environments, then they’re incorporated on fabrics. Adem’s choice of making these images fabrics was to keep them close, like precious memories, reminders, what for me was the perfect framework to enclose my firsts pillows.

The first purpose of these Landscape Theyfriend Pillow was to be explored under the frame of a collective movement session, but due to current COVID-19 lockdown situation, all collective workshops are stopped.
But still, I’d like to keep moving and sharing the relational experience with the pillows by offering the pillow for a durational time of one week.

One week living with a Landscape Theyfriend Pillow, if you live in Amsterdam (for now), it comes with an oil blend made of thyme, lemon,  rosemary, and jasmine, and with a tiny instruction for the user that will leave a trail from this collective experience. 

If you’d like to live with any of these pillows for one week, send me an email : ~)

Co-existing with otherness, how do we break individual boundaries and how do we hold our existence together? By making this togetherness very explicit, with the connection of our hands through the gloves, which shapes and textures could intuit possibilities. What tools to hold care appear, what strategies of movement, which alterations of normative behavior blossom in togetherness.

Listening, feeling enhancement. By blocking sight; sound and touch become the source of knowledge from ourselves, the other and our environment. How to relearn relations with otherness and drive into a deepened moment of grounding and exploration.
