Event description

Description

Artist Fiona James introduces quantum biology, neurogenesis, post traumatic growth, and heart math, sharing some practical tools that activate a sense of a decentralised self. She builds on the idea that human intellect is radically decentralised, abundantly energetic and ever-unfolding. This counters the suggestion that we might best think or create alone, as autonomous individuals, which ignores what little is known of ‘the quantum’, and is akin to thinking of our bodies and selves as mere task based machines, rather than fluidly shifting networks of information and energy that are constantly expressing complexity.

BIOGRAPHY

Fiona James’ work, marries theoretical investigation with experimental body-based strategies. She is a fully qualified practitioner in Tension and Trauma Release Exercises (TRE), Quantum Energy Coaching and Brainspotting; modalities that use the capacities of flesh to reconfigure relations to trauma. These therapeutic hacks bring neuroplasticity to the forefront of political agency, suggesting it be considered through a lens of social choreographic. As an artist she has presented at Residency Unlimited, New York; JVE, Maastricht; Kunstraum, London; Anxiety Arts Festival, London; ICA, London; Berlin, Temporary-Kunsthalle. Alongside this she is co-founder of Bidston Observatory Artistic Research Centre, based on the Wirral. The project aims to provide an affordable interdisciplinary forum where those interested in positive social change can come together to share idea’s, experiment and mutually support each other while dictating their own methods of work. www.bidstonobservatory.org
