Our Yoniverse | Call for Participants

Dear precious woman,

If you identify as female I would like to invite you to participate in this unique and powerful piece of work in the time between 23rd June – 3th July 2018. In this time I will provide slots of individual sessions lasting 2-3 hours with the participating woman to paint their yoni/vulva in the medium of watercolour.

The word yoni stems from Sanskrit meaning “source” and describes the vulva as a stylised
representation of the goddess Shakti. In the Tantra tradition the yoni embodies the origin of life.

A watercolour yoni painting is delicate, vulnerable and powerful in its uncompromising clarity. This makes the work potent on so many levels. If you are intersted you are invited to an informative opening event on Friday 22nd June, 6pm, to be able to ask some questions, to see the set-up and sign up for participation.

The work will then be exhibited in the same space.

Opening night of the exhibition will be on Tuesday 3rd July 6pm and run until Sunday 8th July.

To register your interest, please fill in Art participation form has more details of the project and send to Isabella Halm via email ihalm@web.de, or find her on Facebook or Instagram at Isabella Halm Artist.
