Tiffany Singh & Yvette Sitten – Journey Through the Rainbow Alchemy Lab
August 28th to September 9th, 2017
From August 28th to September 9th , Tiffany Singh & Yvette Sitten embarked on a visionary and visceral journey through the colour spectrum of the rainbow and the chakra energy centres representing the 7 levels between heaven and earth.
Each day they worked with a specific vibrational frequency represented by ;colour. foods, aromas, herbal teas, sound and art practices all within the living practice alchemy lab.
Within this framework of colour therapy, the alchemy lab became a co-creation of all gathered and harvested elements working to transform the sensorial perceptions of the person engaging and partcipating in the gallery space.
Through complete immersion of the senses into a ritual space evocative of temple sanctums of old, colour becomes a transformative experience, both inside and outside. By adorning, wearing, ingesting and resonating with a colour ray and chakra energy every 2 days (7 colours/ chakras in total) we ascend through the spirals of colour consciousness linking earth, which begins the process and heaven, which finishes the connective process.
