** email in advance to make sure she’s there and not out on a walk hello@reneesills.com **

Come hang out with Renee during her research residency! She’ll be in the gallery working but will be thrilled to have any reason not to work. She’d like to extend the invitation to come and visit her to talk about whatever (she currently loves to talk about astrology and astronomy, relationships of all kinds, and pop psychology but will also probably be interested in talking about lots of other things too.) If you don’t want to talk that’s also fine. She will happily take a stretch break with you, drink some tea, draw a picture or take a stroll.

Also check out Renee’s experimental experiential research series, Means of Exchange,  in our Project Room Studio.

RENEE SILLS

Renee Sills is a multidisciplinary artist, author, and educator. The throughline of her work is an ongoing investigation of mindfulness, agency and the adaptive processes of the human body in contemporary landscapes. Compelled by the intersection of embodiment practices (somatics, yoga, dance) and academic discourse surrounding embodiment and identity, Renee’s inquiries invest in experiential research methods and experimental co-creations.
As an artist she works primarily with video, audio, installation and performance. Most of her work is socially engaged and participatory.

Renee has also been a movement educator for over a decade. She currently teaches nationally and internationally for yoga teacher training programs, contemporary dance workshops and her own hybrid programs of experimental arts/life transformative processes. She is the co-founder and co-director of Sola School of Contemplative Arts.
