Vulnerability Companion System | Sunday, October 18, 2020 — 11 AM Pacific Time
Presented by virtual care lab and PHILTH HAUS
VULNERABILITY COMPANION SYSTEM is a series of participatory, livestreamed grief practices curated by artist PHILTH HAUS. In this edition, Andra of PHILTH HAUS opens a portal to a heightened state of emotionality. Cross the threshold into an intimate video chat, followed by an epistolary, tear-scented correspondence….
This event begins a monthly series of emotionality practices guided by diverse companions, each present in multiple facets of grief and emotionality of this moment. The practice aims to build an online archive of videos and practices to return to when you need companions in moments of emotionality.
We do not expect you to cry, nor prioritize a single experience of emotionality. We offer this space to sit with your unique experiences and emotions, as we open ourselves to experience our emotions in full. Together, we empower the tear amidst our seismic grief.
The livestream is public. Please register in advance to join the private video gathering.
