Anna Ádám considers workshop as one of her main artistic medium. At the intersection of performance, mise-en-scène, and workshop, in form of these interactive and immersive Seances, she creates social and spatial contexts, develops new forms of collective aesthetics based on interactivity, participation and collaboration. Both one-on-one and group Seances allow the participants to immerse themselves in a hybrid space, co-create with the artist and therefore gain a more intensive and personal experience. During Seances, following the artist's instructions, partitions, and scripts, participants realize co-exercises, co-execute tasks, and they are, without realizing, slowly involved in a participatory performance as co-makers, co-performers, and spectator at the same time. Based on collective creativity, Seances have always an artistic outcome (installation, objects, photo series, performances...), that can be seen as both it's documentation and production. Following the Seance, these art pieces generally remain in the space, and can be visited as an exhibition.
