Ocean Between Us

You’re invited to an evening of meditative breath work led by artist Naomi Blacklock and her mother Charlie Blacklock. Take part in participatory meditation and ritualised body practice, blending the yoga practice of Charlie with Naomi’s sound practice. Both use breathing techniques as a method of grounding and as an expression of agency and sovereignty.

Perform Ujjayi or ‘wave of breath’: a breathing technique that involves locating the sound of the upward movement and release of the breath from the body. Afterwards, enjoy ayurvedic biscuits and tea made by Charlie and Naomi’s family members.

By bringing the practice of yoga and meditation into the gallery, artist Naomi Blacklock opens up conversations around how these practices have been appropriated in the West as part of a broader discussion of colonisation. The Blacklocks will share their perspectives on navigating these issues within the dynamics of their own family, and in their respective cultural and artistic practices.
