WALK WITH ME
A walk in nature is one of the few activities that could be performed away from home in spite of the pandemic-related restrictions. The topic of mental health on the backdrop of the pandemic is still being neglected in the public discourse, although it's a vital factor of human wellbeing. This magical meditative walk was created for you to relax and recalibrate your mind after a period of time which has been extremely demanding on our psyche.
Concept: Olga Krykun
Sound & music: Glory Affairs, Mor Wen/ Maa Rii, Xynnh
Olga Krykun (b. 1994 in Odessa, UA, lives and works in Prague) studies at the Department of Fine Arts at The Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague. She works predominantly within the mediums of video, audio and performance. Combining elements of story-telling with contemporary symbols, her works evoke a kind of trance-like surrealism.
Glory Affairs was founded by two Vietnamese siblings living in Prague, Czech Republic in 2013 as a platform for sharing music. In 2017, new private music events have arisen with one thing in common - emphasis on the sincere connection between people by combining visuals, body movement workshops, strange sounds and the feeling of being at home. With the current wave of individualism, it is easy to become alienated from the surrounding. Our wish is to provide a place where people stop passing by like anonymous ants in the crowd. Glory Affairs thrives to reconnect people and to reshape a traditional structure of showing and experiencing art by re-imagining the setting of a temporary environment where dominance has no place. It wishes to co-create a place where one can discover new music and new ways of communicating through the body and its movement in a space, to share this experience with both strangers and the closest ones.
