As part of the exhibition Rirkrit Tiravanija: JOUEZ/PLAY, the PHI Foundation offers zootherapy sessions in collaboration with the organization Flair Thérapie.

Two sessions will take place within Rirkrit Tiravanija’s art installation, untitled 2017 (skip the bruising…), a recreation of a bar where you can play board games for free during the PHI Foundation’s opening hours.

The event is inspired by Tiravanija’s artwork, DO NOT EVER WORK (Chair edition) (2016)—a chair built by the artist. The visitor that sits on the chair has no other choice but to find a way to relax. These zootherapy sessions will provide an opportunity to share moments together and relax in the bar area, in the company of Doris, a zootherapy assistance dog.

Biography

Flair Thérapie

Founded in 2019 by an animal lover and a human enthusiast, Flair Thérapie is an organization that works daily to offer zootherapy programs and services to improve people’s health and quality of life.

Driven and guided by a love of animals and strong human values, Flair Thérapie stands out in its field by creating and implementing diversified and innovative services that capitalize on the potential of the human-animal relationship to meet the current and future needs of its clients and partners.

Flair Thérapie works with clients of all ages and backgrounds, specializing in those with physical or cognitive disabilities, dementia, anxiety, chronic illness, rehabilitation, mental illness or bereavement. Because animals have a heightened capacity to create bonds and arouse emotions, zootherapy interventions are less difficult and more accessible.
