CONTEMPLATION is conceived as an event combining both art and spirituality throughout photography, architecture, music and meditation. The whole project revolves around an original collaboration between the photographer and Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard and the Colombian architect Simón Vélez.
CONTEMPLATION is a trandisciplinary artistic initiative that extends beyond continental frontiers and cultural identities. It seeks to make art a gateway to some of the fundamental values of our time and our societies: altruism, empathy, serenity, responsibility and awareness for life…
Prominent participants from their respective fields invite the public into a spiritual voyage so as to take the time to reflect, together, on our world.
CONTEMPLATION comes to life as part of the Rencontres d’Arles 2018, from the 2nd of July until the 23rd of September.
All proceeds from Matthieu Ricard’s participation to CONTEMPLATION will be donated to Karuna-Shechen : www.Karuna-Shechen.org
