Nicolas Cilins, Healing Routine


Description

What body movements tell us about our relationship with ourselves and others

"Healing Routine" is an immersive installation and the result of a collective endeavour: Nicolas Cilins and a group of International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum employees attended weekly dance therapy workshops led by Suzanne Z’Grabben and Maroussia Ehrnrooth.
With this installation, which was filmed at the Museum, Cilins addresses mental health through body movement. Can dance become a tool for understanding oneself and others? Can art heal everyday life? "Healing Routine" explores the body as much as the surrounding architecture. During the creative process, everyone had the opportunity to delve within themselves while exploring other ways of inhabiting the museum space. The resulting installation, which is not without humour, questions artistic therapies, the place of the artist and the role of the museum.

 

This work is presented as part of the exhibition A FRAGILE BALANCE, from 9 November 2022 to 12 March 2023.
