In the tranquil and inspiring setting of Nicolas Floc'h's Open Sea exhibition, MAAT offers a unique and immersive guided meditation experience. This mindfulness meditation practice invites you to stop, relax, and open your senses and curiosity to the art that surrounds you. Beyond the meditation practice, participants will have the opportunity to learn some mindfulness and slow art strategies. Prioritising personal well-being, these strategies help us observe pieces of art in a comprehensive way, facilitating the emergence of new layers of meaning.


When art and meditation merge, a truly enriching and transformative experience emerges. The regular practice of meditation has scientifically proven benefits such as stress reduction, increased attention and focus, improved sleep, and more. Art provides a natural invitation to meditation, a form of self-care and deep reflection about ourselves and the world around us. Meditating with art is a powerful way to cultivate awareness and connection, to find beauty, inspiration, and meaning in every moment.


‘It's not a thing, but an experience, an ongoing conversation between the work of art and the viewer.’ Arden Reed
