Jatun Risba (SLO/UK) – ki – is an interdisciplinary artist and joker exploring beyond human paradigms. Risba’s favourite pronouns are ki (sing.) and kin (poss. plur.). By approaching Art, Science and Technology in terms of ritual mysticism, Risba recovers poetry and magic in contemporary societies. These ‘arts of self’, performed among and with kin through actios, happenings, installations, workshops, lectures, … create opportunities to reveal, undo, expand and rewire the selfhood. Risba’s current artistic investigation deals with the theme ‘Life matters’ that unfolds into two frameworks. The first one is ‘Stock exchange’: a philosophical and practical investigation of life matter. The second one is ‘Be-coming ki(n)’ and is connected with a performative undoing of humanness for the emergence of Earthly kinship. Risba has presented work internationally: in Slovenia, Italy, France, Bulgaria, Spain, Slovakia, the USA, Mexico and the UK and was the recipient of the a-n Artist Bursary in 2019.
