Join Locust Projects on Saturday, July 31 at 2pm for the second program in our new Care series. Respite with Violenta Flores (aka Juan Carlos Zaldivar) is an immersive, calming visual experience and guided meditation for caregivers.
Intervening in Locust Projects’ current Main Gallery exhibition, Homeline, which features three illuminated domestic elements--a window, a carpet, and a curtain--Violenta will add projections of moonlight and a fluttering hummingbird while guiding participants through the otherwise dark, open space. 10-minute complimentary chair massages will be offered after the meditation.
Violenta is a filmmaker and video artist whose work has screened at the Sundance Film Festival, MoMA - NYC, and elsewhere. As a sound designer, they have worked on Academy and Emmy Award nominated productions. They are a recipient of a 2020 & 2021 WaveMaker Grant for their Virtual Reality project, Variety Reinspires, based on their work caring for their elderly mother with Alzheimer’s.
This event is intentionally designed for artists who are also caregivers of any kind, but anyone who is interested is welcome. Please RSVP here.
