For the third performance of a series, Maeda will pray for three days, pacing in meditation, sewing raw silk into her painting and tying strands of her hair to the thread. In 2021, inspiration for the exhibition began from a dream of “Volcanic Energy” which erupts profound sentiment within us. Her intention is to remove blockages and be in harmonic flow for us all to carry light. On the finale of her performance and the beginning of the exhibition, February 18th, 2023 from 5:00-8:00pm, Maeda will have her head shaved to gratefully release what no longer resonates with us.
“May we connect to our center, let our inner volcano erupt, create our own foundation and allow ourselves to live our lives with the light of our inner life force that we have received”
