Somanauts workshops are realised amidst Alma Heikkilä’s exhibition at Studio K, Kiasma. With the assistance of the practices, the exhibition can be expanded towards a multisensory experience of the artworks, the space, other bodies, and one’s own body.
While astronauts make their journeys of discovery into space, somanauts dive deep into the reality of the body. The times in which we live urge us toward continuous doing and action. In Somanauts, bodies are allowed to drop all doing and focus on experiencing. We awaken the cells’ consciousness of themselves.
All particles in the universe resonate with each other, in waves and vibrations. By embodying the movement patterns of this vibration, we ask ourselves how we vibrate in relation to the space, materials, people, and other living things. It is being present to the energetics and inbetweenness of all things material and animate.
