movement & visual art Walking Oracle Olga Masleinnikova Featured in Gallery 3 in Walk Create Project, 2021 During lockdown I engaged in a daily walk which created a habit of self-compassion, self-enquiry and self-care. A meaningful tracking system has emerged, a path to my past, my present and my future selves. My new habit has become my playful walking oracle in the area of East-Sussex, where I live. I would leave my home setting the following intention: ‘what do I need to understand or to do about my current situation?’ Then I would surrender the answer to my feet, to my senses and to my environment, and take a picture. Give it a try. What do you receive? #walking_oracle Walking Oracle …. is a series of visuals exploring this experiential connection between our emotional states and our environment. How an inner emotional state or our inner weather or inner chatter are reflected by the way we see, the way we frame and the way we receive our surroundings. Equally, how our surroundings have the potential to inform, to teach and to guide or/and to balance our inner landscapes and our reception of the world.

Bethlem Open School Remote
movement artist Bethlem Open School Remote An online course and meeting space for us to collect, create and share resources to help us survive, and even thrive, in these unprecedented times. Today's invitation is to explore the notion of Flow by following ----------------------------------------------------------------- Follow a score Follow a shape Follow your inhale Follow an arm in space Follow the feet into a new direction in a familiar space Follow the feet into a new direction in a freshly discovered space Follow a leaf Follow a map Follow an exhale Follow your heart Follow a thought Follow a sound Follow and trust what comes next Follow the words in a book, opened on a random page Walk, jump, lean and get still Run, jump, get still then lean Follow what feels right Give a gesture of care to yourself Send a gesture of support to your colleague Follow the beat of your favourite song Follow someone else's movement Follow your impulse Follow the tracing of your hand Follow a colour Follow your voice ------------------------------------------------------------- Share your discoveries of 'follow' and 'flow' by leaving a creative trace: photos, words, collages, sculptures, poems, videos and anything else that seems appropriate. You can also connect your 'gestures of support' by following them one after the other and create a sense of flow.

filmaker/performer What remains... Anatomy of an artist : Being Mr X by Michaela Ross, Josip Lizatovic, Gilbert Ratcliff and Olga Masleinnikova 21-22 May 2016 Siobhan Davies Studios, London, UK Presentation of the work of Mr X, an artist resident at the Bethlem Royal Hospital. His improvised structures document the endless process of adjustment which occurs as he recalibrates his relationship to the spaces of the institution. Mr X uses his own body to determine the scale of each work, using arm and leg measurements as basic units, operating within the constraints (visible and invisible) imposed on him by the space and staff. Documentation of the making process with Mr X will be on display throughout the building.
