Mapping and Romance in Caylus
by Societe Generale Gallery at Alliance Française de Singapour
Location: Societe General Private Banking Gallery
Artist(s): Catharsis
Date: 7 Dec - 22 Dec 2011

An exhibition of mapping, history, walking and romance. For 30 days last summer, the artist walked and mapped the little medieval village of Caylus, France, while immersed in the history of troubadours, romance and the Cathars. These works reflect location, history and the affairs of her heart.

Astrid Kensinger Almkhlaafy is currently assistant professor at NTU's school of art design and media in visual communication. She holds an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and a BA in classical & near eastern archaeology from Bryn Mawr College.
She works in the tradition of Somatics, where direct experience and the body are key ingredients in exploring the inner world through physical engagement with location. As an artist much of her understanding of place is through walking and mapping.
Her current major projects involve investigations of sacred and historically rich sites, examining the process of pilgrimage and methodologies of performing and delineating such actions. Her work has been shown in Asia, America and Europe.
