Josef Ka is a Russian performance artist whose work uniquely combines a range of potent influences, disciplines and sources. Her creative processes, and the performances they serve, are rooted in the instinctive, spontaneous, and highly intuitive. Her relentless physicality – how she imposes and exposes her body within uncertain, potentially threatening real environments – is key to Josef Ka’s skill at drawing us within her creative domain.

Josef Ka is an artist who focuses mainly on site-specific visual arts and performance art. She has a deep and continuing relationship with a wide range of dance forms and traditions – from classical ballet to butoh and flamenco – and often gets her inspiration from her own personal history and experiences, in combination with a direct engagement with the here and now of life as she lives it. Three often-recurring themes in her work are Happiness, Time and Memory. View all posts by Josef Ka
