Offering artworks as treatment
BÜRO imaginaire presented a set of remedies curing the bodies and the souls in the framework of the visual arts programme at Bánkitó Festival 2019. The treatments of the Lakeside Clinic reached the patients’ souls through the eyes, the ears, the mouth and the nose. The services of the salon included unusual health and art “procedures” for those who suffered from diverse types of stress and anxiety. For instance, the patients could select individual or group exercises that compensate for the daily pressure on the body, a ritual that sweetened the everyday stress caused by hair removal, a sound bath that guided the participants through the process of becoming one with nature or a laughter-yoga session.
