How do we enrich our lives, re-energise and sustain a positive, healthy mindset? Since time began, humans have developed an abundance of rituals and routines that provide joy, growth and grounding; ways to survive. Whether shared generationally, passed around in community, or discovered along the way on individual paths — it’s the sharing of these rituals which enable us as a species to find moments of ease and joy during our time on this planet.
ME 2 U began on our platform as a way to share personal items chosen by our contributors; a book, a film, a song, a recipe, whatever it may be, to cultivate a space of co-learning. ME 2 U: A collective manifesto takes its cues from this. Presenting 20 artists works, each providing a visual representation of a love letter to the past, present, and future, the exhibition explores regenerative themes surrounding rebirth and renewal, a reclamation of feminist and queer narratives, and the honouring of nature, both internal and external, as material. .
An accompanying series of events invites Artists and facilitators of Asian heritage to share their own rituals, objects and tools, encapsulating the purpose of ME 2 U in eight events ranging from medatiave art classes to Supper clubs and a market with goods created by Asian makers.
