Brodac Art Gallery. Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina. 2018

MC/Live Performance where the body functions as a sensory platform and the allusion of shamanism as a way of connecting with the forces of nature and dwelling on new social imaginaries as well as questioning our roles for a present and future sustainable life. The figure of the futuristic shaman acts as an intermediary between the human and non-human world, exposing the grotesque and challenging what is considered beautiful and normal in our society.

 

We may think that the body is in constant metamorphosis when in contact with other individuals, objects, environment and experiences. My question is whether you can strip the body from cultural stigmas and bring it to an individualization going beyond identity. A kind of exfoliation that involves moving the skin layers as a process of renewal and transition.

Faith, illusionism, fiction as a tool for survival!
