gallery Interview with artist Priya Assal Gheysari

Interview with artist Priya Assal Gheysari, by Á.R. Vázquez-Concepción.

“My work activates space as a platform that stimulates experiences and kinesthetic learning. With that in mind, I design immersive environments intended for self-reflection, mind/body awareness, and community building.

I like to think of bodies as containers of consciousness, able to be activated and awakened through strategic organization, stimulation, and direction. I see this process of awakening as an effective pathway for achieving a collective experience of peace and unity.

The spaces I’ve created range from isolation boxes to communal prayer rooms, bathing rooms, self-confessional booths, and retreats for cross-cultural collaborations. In my most current projects, I make use of water for energetic purification and treat the space of the bathroom as a sanctuary where the act of bathing becomes a form of prayer.”
