During March-April 2024, NAC artist-in-residence Nazaré Soares offers individual water incubations sessions with a focus on body-mind-alignment through gentle pressure massage, movement and listening to repatterning touch in warm water.

As part of her research Water Holds the Shell of the Skin, Soares seeks to rekindle the cultural significance of communal bathing while exploring cellular memory, liquid intelligence and promoting relational practices in contemporary art. The research was initially developed at SODAS 2123 residency for the ūmėdė’2024 programme. 

The individual water incubation sessions will take place at the Nidos Kempingas (E. A. Jonušo g. 11, Neringa). Each session will last between 1–1.5 hours.

Nazaré Soares (Norway/Spain) facilitates incubations in water that gently influence the thermal properties of cell clusters. Her work is rooted in hydrofeminisms and deep ecologies. It interweaves psychoacoustic and cinematic spaces, performance art and hydrotherapies, producing spaces for ritual and incubation. She is a founder of the art platform Invisibledrum, and a board member of NGO Tribute Earth. Her work has been exhibited at the Art & Science Museum of Singapore, Palais des Congrès of Montréal, Metamorf Art & Technology Biennale, Museum of Contemporary Art of Ethiopia, Brighton Museum, Fabrica in Brighton, Indian Habitat Centre, Trondheim Kunstmuseum, Centro Botín, Sonar Music & Technology Festival, Kunsthall Trondheim & Varanger Museum among others.
