A Meal For My Ancestors: Healing the Museum until January 31st 2018.
Grace Ndiritu’s art practice falls within an approach of living and performative art, inspired especially by alternative communities, lifestyle of the 60s and 70s, shamanism and mindfulness. For her residency at ThalieLab, she will invite staff members of the UN, NATO and the EU Parliament; as well as refugees and asylum seekers who have experienced traumas in their country of origin and who have migrated to Brussels. Using shamanic practice, one of the oldest forms of spirituality of humanity and meditation techniques, the artist will lead them through an initiatory journey. She will organize several meditation classes with refugees before a ‘cooking together’ session for the final meal, in which a public round-table will be organized with medical doctors, academics and shamans. A film and a publication will document the project.
