Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land: Blackout Poetry with Tattfoo Tan

This is an exercise that illustrate the process of negation. You start to identify words from a page and string them together to make a poem. You can black out the rest of the page or leave them out to be readable. Bring books, magazine to share. We’ll hang the work as part of the exhibition at the end of the workshop.

These satsang events begin with invocation, grounding, meditation and a run down of the syllabus book, and introduction to non-duality.

The 2019 Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art exhibition Heal the Man in order to Heal the Land explores how spirituality manifests itself out of the connections between internal experience and the material world. How can we connect with nature in a society that continues to give primacy to disposability and mass-consumption? How do we move away from a mindset of scarcity to one of collaboration? How can we be transformed from the egocentric “i” to the love supreme “I AM”?  In this work, artist Tattfoo Tan uses participatory prompts, games and affirmations to engage you in the play of the universe. Let the process begin.
