Vicki Smith | Holding Space

 

Vicki Smith | Holding Space
June 6 - 18, 2020
3045 Granville Street, Vancouver

The therapeutic concept of holding space is a process of witnessing and validating someone else’s emotional state without judgement or interference.

I feel that is also the beauty of art.  Art holds a space into which we can release our often wordless emotions and experiences. It will absorb and reflect back to us without judgment whatever we arrive with. The simple act of paying attention and being present to what is in front of us will allow emotions to rise up.  A work of art performs the beautiful task of being a space that holds that experience so we can move through it.

“When we hold space we make room in our hearts so that others can be in theirs” Krishna Das
