FOCUS ON SPIRITUALITY AND EXISTENTIALITY IN ART

Come along on a guided tour focusing on spirituality and existentiality in art. We will explore the various ways in which artists have expressed spirituality or dimensions beyond our everyday reality – encountering the art by being present with all our senses.

Thereafter, art educator Jessica Eldenstjärna will lead a guided meditation. We will start by focusing on our breath and notice what happens to our bodies when we turn our attention inward.

The guided tour and meditation is held by Jessica Eldenstjärna, art educator at Moderna Museet, Expressive Art Therapist and artist.

Meditate at home!

Experience a guided meditation at home with Jessica Eldenstjärna. The film is recorded in the exhibition “Hilma af Klint – The Ten Largest” that was on display during the autumn of 2022.
