SKOR is proud to present Fear Cure, a new video by Finnish artist Pilvi Takala made from a collection of her visits to NLP (Neuro-linguistic programming) coaches in an attempt to be cured of her fear of swine flu and the impending flu epidemic. The work brings to the foreground how NLP methodologises the reorganization of human perception and physiological responses through altering associative imagery in the subconscious mind.
Fear Cure was produced as part of Prologues for SKOR’s debut in the series of symposia Actors, Agents and Attendants: Speculations for the Cultural Organisations of Civility, held on October 29 and 30 October, 2010 in Felix Meritis.
