In April 2013, performance artists Josef Ka and Anton Smekh premiered their striking creation “Premonition” at Vita Buivid’s Studio, a renowned Moscow art gallery. The performance delves into the universal struggle of human existence, poignantly capturing the anticipation of something magnificent while also confronting the harsh realities of disappointment and failure.

International performance, visual and sound artist Josef Ka blends richly varied influences – everything from Butoh dance to cinematic theory – with her decades of nomadic world travel to create bold, highly personal site-specific art. Josef Ka’s themes range from investigating the place of the human body in contemporary reality to exploring the inner body as a representative system of our human and post human kind. Her artistic practice often actively invites the audience inside a sort of private reverie, making it is a deeply participatory one; she actively engages with both her audiences and with a wide diversity of other experimental artists. In addition to her own work, Josef Ka curates a regular series of events and exhibitions at her Helsinki underground space – Sauna Gallery – and teaches classes on the theory and practice of performance art. She is also the inventor of the WORST THEATRE and her yogic training system, KA-YOGA. https://eskargoeskargo.com/ View all posts by Josef Ka
