Around the days of the fall equinox, Elsa Marie will curate a WOMENS only event at Residencia in collaboration with Just Naked.
We will play with :
-face/ body paint (optional)
-mini photoshoot (optional)
-exploration of vulnerability
The event will include a taste of biodynamic red wine, nutritional snacks, beautiful tea, and a light-hearted, open discussion around treating the body as a temple. “You are what you eat.”
We will talk about the “female v. male gaze” and how we navigate our bodies, minds, and spirits in today’s commercial/ profit/ industry/ masculine driven, yet ever changing world. With the Age of the Aquarius on the rise, and moments of peace on the horizon, we have so much to look forward to. This will be a very special evening to network with other powerful women and share ideas, space, and time.

Elsa Marie Keefe is an artist based in New York City. Her work is primarily focused around the human body and nature. Through both photography and mixed media, she transmits a message of transcendence and universal beauty. “All bodies and all things of nature are beautiful. Humans are animals are sentient beings. We are the earth.” Elsa takes nude photographs of herself and others in nature, in places void of manmade objects. She also collects trees, rocks, bones and other objects from the land and sea that she places on canvas with resin. The intention behind the art is to remind us that we are all one, interconnected, and a part of mother earth. Performance art is another medium that she is utilizes as of late, promoting public nudity, hoping that we may all become more comfortable with the human body. Holistic wellness, spirituality, and healing are the backbone for her lifestyle and central components to her process and vision.
Just Naked’s Principles - PVC
Participation: We ask that you are fully engaged at our events. Yes, getting naked is an experience in and of itself, but please arrive with curiosity and the energy to participate in the theme of the event. Another facet of participation is arriving with a clear mind. While responsible BYOB is sometimes allowed, visible intoxication is not.
Vulnerability: This Principle arose from the need to clarify the subjectivity of being naked. A woman going topless publicly, however legal it might be, is likely to arouse a negative response from most crowds. For this reason, we accept that a woman’s edge of vulnerability might mean keeping their bottoms on at our events. For men, we invite you to discover your edge of vulnerability in other ways. Perhaps you cross your arms during conversation? Uncross your arms to feel what that’s like. Maybe you’re afraid of looking stupid when you dance? Attend our Movement and Connection event to explore that fear and move beyond it. If you do not identify with the male or female archetypes, or are transitioning gender, please do whatever suits your needs. Our Builders are knowledgeable about these experiences and eager to help you.
Cohesion: For Just Naked, Cohesion means connecting with others in the spirit of openness and respect. When we do this collectively, we create social unity. In this unity, we are most effective at normalizing naked within the local and global communities. Respect means treating others how they would like to be treated. This may be difficult to intuit, so we ask that you familiarize yourself with our full FAQ.
