In the work of Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, currently on show at IMMA, body, nature, poetry, architecture and geometry are interwoven. While the artist rejects the idea of spiritual meaning in her work, commenting – “it is just the hexagon and line, there is no philosophy behind it”, it is a reading that viewers, and critics, return to again and again, with The Irish Times most recently calling the exhibition “enriching and inspiring.” Join us to explore this idea for yourself with a guided tour of the exhibition, followed by a yoga class in the unique environment of the museum, that will explore the question of symbolism in Farmanfarmaian’s art through embodied experience.
Facilitated by Paola Catizone, artist, yoga teacher and member of IMMA’s Visitor Engagement Team, the tour and class will take place on Thursday 27 September from 18.30 to 20.30 and costs €6 to attend. It will begin with a guided tour and end with light refreshments.
Please wear comfortable clothes and bring your own mat. No previous experience required.
