Art Souterrain Festival/ RESET
Palais des congrès de Montréal
02.29 – 03.22.2020
“What if you could, by the press of a button erase everything, what would you do with this blank canvas? If you could start from nothing how would you imagine the world?” Humanity is at a turning point. Should we persist in our habits or become aware of our repetitive way of life in order to rebuild from the ground up?”
In order to be open to imagining a new future, one must be able to free oneself of disinformation, propaganda, old habits, assumptions and deeply rooted prejudices.
The Mindfulness Station (Station de la pleine conscience) invites visitors to slow down and reset their state of mind.
Passersby are offered a seat within a peaceful shelter where they can listen to previously recorded instructions. The recording is accessed through YouTube by activating the QR codes posted on the inside of the enclosure.
The Station acts as an emotional gateway to other approaches and other artistic visions on display in Reset exhibition.
At the end of their visit, the guests will be more receptive and better prepared to consider the issues that are crucial to humanity’s future.
