Event description

Description

Join Erik Bergrin, October's Work In Progress resident, for a workshop integrating meditation and textile work.

Erik will lead you in a Tibetan meditation called "Feeding Your Demons", in which you will focus on a "demon" of yours, ie anger, or a specific problem you're having , and personify it in order to engage in a dialogue with it. You'll then be working on creating a visual of your demon through drawings and textile work.



Erik Bergrin is an artist based out of NYC. After years of designing and constructing costumes and garments, his work evolved to (wearable) fiber sculptures. Erik has a strong connection with meditation and psychology, and he uses his realizations as symbols in his work. The ideas start with something he wants to explore in himself or a problem he wants to examine, and he will make a visual representation of it in order to confront it and change it. You can visit Erik's installation for Work In Progress from October 2-31, at TAC Manhattan studio, and learn more about her work and process during Artist Open Hours, on Saturdays 2-5PM.
