 In Search of Antidote- Encountering Catharsis

In search of Antidote-Intercepting Psychosis is proposed work for PEPA it is about it is a process to find an antidote understanding the subconscious thoughts through various ritual processes. These rituals inspired by my cultural shamanistic practices which are   incorporated in my work with profound metaphoric connotations. The idea is to undergo experiential cathartic effect on both for my audiences and myself.

Catharsis, Purification, Healing, Filtration, and Condensation & Extraction of Pure Self are essential elements in my works. Through various approaches which are Ephemeral, Spontaneous & Interactive in Nature. Key areas of my concerns have been Humanitarian, related to War, Crimes, Migration, Women's issues, and Socio-political, Psychological and Philosophical aspects. All these thoughts go in the process of Distillation (psychologically/ physical) relating to concerning issues.  Collect the research material and the sources to finally, extracting a purified element out of it.  It helps in the process of healing.  My work encapsulated with Process of Distillation metaphorically may be applied to all areas of concerns/ issues addressed in works like socio-political, Ecological, Environmental, Psychological, Philosophical and Existential questions about Life &Humanity. As an individual who is part of a social structure, a self who has to navigate through repercussions of socio-political upheavals, develop perspicacity on related human issues, and on a personal level of existence coping with an emotive response of alienation, insecurity, fear, the by-product of our "Post Modern" era. The duality of exploration reflects the concepts underlying in works. I outline my art practice as Multidisciplinary as my art practice has evolved through practice in various mediums like Performance, Printmaking, Painting. My focus has been to blend this medium of art into an interdisciplinary language.

I think that poetry is at the base of life and that it must be lived that way. I've been trying my whole life to understand what art is. Over the years I have experimented with almost everything. I still have not managed to understand what it is. This is why I continue.


This action is the likely sequence of an unlikely reset.

Severance II

‘The fundamental core of my practice deals with states of phenomenological expression of self and connectivity of the physical and meta-physical. Through this expression my life is given meaning, it is the search for meaning within my life, that has brought my work to its current manifestation. Performance Art allows me to enter an existential plain, where the vein of an innate knowledge as Beings in this world is explored through both live and photographic mediums, culminating in a lexicon of works that seek to communicate, focusing on the narrative between objects and action, with live works incorporating vibrations of sound and energy, developing forms through performance actions and mark making. Intent on transcending ego my work lifts me to a heightened state of communication exploring natural materials as means of expression to connect and open discourse, exploring the temporal tensions in relation to identity, seeking to go beyond the shroud of modern life.’

After the performances we will have Q&A with the participation of ANDRE STITT
