River Boats & Inner Thoughts: Andreia Alves de Oliveira in conversation wit...
Tue 21 March 2017, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
Photographer Andreia Alves de Oliveira will present her project River Boats & Inner Thoughts, a calendiary of the boats navigating the Thames and subjective, psychological states. Issued daily in digital format using the online platform Facebook, it is a work about surveillance (of exterior life and of the self), about the river Thames and its current role in the city, about the relationship between outside and inside.
Andreia will be in conversation with mindfulness teacher Andy Paine, exploring the relationships between her work and the practice of mindfulness. Andy will talk us through the allegory of Inner thoughts as River Boats and offer a brief experiential taster of meditative awareness practices. Thoughts in the mind are like boats on the river. Allowing them to float by freely enables inner calm and a greater degree of freedom in interacting with the outer world.
Andreia Alves de Oliveira is a photo artist and researcher based in London. Research interests include the notion of artistic research, and the theory of photography and theories of representation, in relation to concepts of space and the everyday.
Andy Paice used to be a buddhist monastic, he now teaches mindfulness in community and business settings, is a life coach and in his spare time is a campaigner for a more participatory democracy.
