Movana's recent touring project, “Travelling into your Bookshelf” is Movana's on-going project to create dialogues around memories of books that have been donated to her by people from all over the world. Through meeting friends and strangers and reading their books, Movana attempts to establish relationships with them and learn about their culture by exploring their memories and manintaning a two-way communication. Through her knitting process with the participants, she hopes to create a new way of reading and enabling the viewers to re-examine the existing communication barriers between people. It is full of adventures, inspiration, suprises, energy; everyone and every culture is connected. Travelling Bookshelf is a never-ending story, a piece that crosses times, places, people, cultures, histories and love.
Come listen to her fascinating stories at the Blue Lotus Sessions.
Max 12 pax, HK$ 100 a person, includes HK$50 voucher for any book purchase.
