Massage studio Eva
Night of museum and galleries
15. may 2021
In February 2021 I was selected by Slovak National Gallery to become a resident in old mill – Schaubmarov mlyn in Pezinok.
I supposed to react to current exhibition called Group Therapy, curated by Petra Hanáková.
I explored one to one session, reacting on Valentina Desideri and Betty Martin practices.
But as gallery stayed closed, we decided to create a video of one of the potential sessions, which was then (in the end) presented in gallery as well.
