_COLLAB: Birth of a New Warrior by Kristen Lafferty
On her first-ever exhibit, artist Kristen Lafferty is on a mission to heal. Coming out strong from a personal trauma, Kristen took to art to create a multi-sensory show that reflects her journey of pain and strength.
“I knew that I had to do something major to help repair my broken self after experiencing trauma. To do this, I turned to many forms of healing: shamanism, yoga, meditation, sound, voice and art. All things I had never done to become a me that I had never been. A me that anyone could become. A warrior.”
Witness Kristen’s rebirth as a Warrior. “Journey Through Healing – Birth of a New Warrior” opens at the _GALLERY on 19-20 August 2017 with panel discussions on rape + yoga + self-defense + sound healing. The exhibit stays on until 27 August.
