SECRET CLAY

keep your mistery safe

RÓNG in Chinese means To Unify. It expresses the materiality of things that dissolves and expands.

Rong Space is a holistic participatory art project created by Federica Buonsante (PhD), between Puglia and Shanghai to dissolve the perceived separation from what is perceived as foreign.

 

Drawing inspiration from participatory theories, Vipassana meditation and the Taoist poetics of the Opposites, it challenges the notion of Presence in space by exploring the relationship with voids, through expressive activities on a white stage. The core mission is to enhance belonging and deep connection through forms of creative gathering. 

 

At the crossroads between mindfulness, performance art and stage design, Rong Space engaged associations, groups, and individuals in the prototyping phase (2020-2023), winning a public Call (PIN 2021-2022) within the EU Fund for Social Development issued by the Puglia Region.

 

Rong Place later registered as a no-profit (ETS). Operating nomadically, Rong Space practices engage schools, artists and institutions to explore the relationship between art and consciousness, to research, co-design, and facilitate practices to promote mindful living and self-care for a more peaceful society. 

How to enhance self-awareness in a fast-paced world?

Practice is the way. The empirical experience of emptiness is a medium to enhance self-awareness. The dialogue art-science becomes the engine to activate this process.

We promote an anthropological reading of public art, combining the expressive arts with collective stage design. All our practices pay attention to three forms of gathering in which the quality of the exchange is the central element of the whole staging: rituals, celebrations, and gifts.
