Each Morning in August – Emilie Lindsten with Giulia Sansoni
This product is currently sold out.
Meeting during an 8 days silent retreat in South France Emilie Lindsten & Giulia Sansoni decided to make a project together. During August 2015 they would respectively make a photograph and a drawing each day every morning after their meditation capturing and expressing themselves as raw and spontaneously as they would be feeling in that moment. The works were made in their separate locations, Giulia lives in Stockholm with her family and Emilie moving between Southern Sweden and Italy.
This book is is a collection of their daily practice.
Emilie Lindsten is a Swedish/Italian artist and creativity and yoga nidra facilitator with a background in fine arts, design and social anthropology, currently based in the rural south of Sweden. Her spiritual practices and inner journey were sparked by a need to heal herself from addiction in her early twenties, which brought her to sit in several Buddhist silent retreats, live in a rural ashram in India, sit around women circles in Wales and find menstruality and dancing as a way to cultivate integrity and explore herself. Looking back, she sees that her connection to her inner world has always been strong but the need of her young adult self to adapt to social norms brought illness into her life. Bringing truth and transparency to her sense of feeling and connecting to her own body’s intuition brought back balance to her emotional life, a process that is still unfolding today and weaves together her artistic and spiritual practices into one embodied process.
