YUGO YOGA (2008 – ongoing )
@ Assembly of Disturbance Festival, London ; City of Women Festival, Ljubljana, Slovenia, Emergency at Castelfield Gallery, Manchester; Museum of Yugoslav History Belgrade, Serbia; Late at Tate Britain and many more…
Yugo Yoga is a series of participatory performances that fuse elements of yoga, archived physical exercises (fiskultura), poses from socialist-realist sculptures, revolutionary slogans and New age messages of self improvement. It is performed both as a solo and as a group led performance in site specific settings.
Yugo Yoga wishes to communicate through an act of embodiment – directly to and through the body. The viewers are invited to immerse themselves directly in the artwork thus arousing the spirit of egality and collaboration.
