Jatun Risba



15. 6. 18:00 Live performance

Jatun Risba, a transmedia performance artistS from Slovenia will present at Re-connect Art two works.
A 2 channel video 'Know Thyself' documenting a live intervention in the European Parliament will be part of the festival exposition. The project is a manifestation of the desire of the EU young generation to live a free, informed, healthy, active and respectful life, while recognizing that being part of a sane society is absolutely crucial condition of achieving that.

Her live performance NOT AN ADOLESCENT GIRL is based on the Tibetan process of Feeding your Demons. It will be part of the Decolonisation of the Self block on 15th June. The project evokes, feeds and transmutes the “demons of trauma” into self-empowerment forces. The actio has a structure of a Possession Rite that advocates adorcism (instead of exorcism) through the thinking-body of the artist becoming the channel of transindividual experience.
