VULNERABILITY COMPANION SYSTEM is a monthly series of participatory, livestreamed grief practices curated by artist PHILTH HAUS. We open this portal to heightened states of emotionality.
Guided by diverse companions, each present in multiple facets of grief and emotionality of this moment, the practice aims to build an online archive of videos and practices to return to when you need companions in moments of emotionality.
We do not expect you to cry, nor prioritize a single experience of emotionality. We offer this space to sit with your unique experiences and emotions, as we open ourselves to experience our emotions in full.
Together, we empower the tear amidst our seismic grief.
