On Prescription

No breaking news propably – we live in a society concerned with physical phenomenon and material manifestations: Money, materialism and matter always seem to outmanoeuvre consciousness and spirituality for instance! And the division between body and soul still seem to be a mere fact to the majority of people around here (at least when we talk Western Europe…)

And when it comes to health questions there’s no real difference. We know a lot about how the physical body works – which is very good – until a certain point as the body is in fact the temple of the soul. And therefore it is only admirable that we take good care; that we trim, exercise, nurture, goes on a diet, wash the intestines, and fight the urge to smoke, to eat sugar, drink alcohol, take drugs and go to any other kind of excesses. We want to become – or stay – “fit” – but fit for what?

Controlling the body, the temple, is only one part of the game. What about the content of the temple – the soul itself? How can we give more attention to soul matters and establish a better balance between the inner and outer realities?

Together with a dozen local artists I approach this question during the upcoming Århus Festival Week. We´ll do so by literally handing out prescriptions for souls and minds – in the form of small pieces of unique art. Provocative, beautiful, intriguing or just plain odd images – meant for internal as well as external use.

The event will take place from Højbjerg Bibliotek starting Friday afternoon 16-18 and as long as there’re still prescriptions available. Feel free to drop by and pick yourself whatever you need “on prescription”
