wouNded-wouNd, 2018 / 2019
Part of WHITEOUT – Virtual Reality Exhibition by New Scenario
“[sHe/it...] is my bio-political pronoun but simply call me [sHit]; if you can not deal with your own confusions,” says Va-Bene Elikem Fiatsi [crazinisT artisT], performance artist from Ghana. With performances, experimental videos, and installations, [sHe/it] addresses political injustice, gender prejudice, sexism, religious extremism, and feelings of vulnerability.
For WHITEOUT, the existential performance wouNded-wouNd, which pushes physical limits, was reenacted in a sterile exhibition setting. In wouNded-wouNd Va-Bene Elikem Fiatsi explores [sHe/it]’s own emptiness, mortality, failures, vulnerability, and inferiority in search of healing and purification in a repeated ritual.ENQUIRY
