NON GRATA is a International performance group
To the group belongs
around 1000 members from all over the world . The main
characteristics of the members are anonymity in group work, ignorance
of local art world and mass media. Group has performed in Asia, Europe
and South and North America with chaotic structures, street actions
and long lasting "ghetto marathons".
Around the name NON GRATA there have been different hushes and shushes for
a long time. Already from the point of view of death of
conventionalization of art it has embodied the horrible and unwanted
disembodiment of human person, from which the meaninglessness of nowadays art, is pouring out.
For those, whose world of arts starts from the point, where the art world
ends, NON GRATA has been a liberator, the orphic gap in the seemingly
unalterable course, which however betrays us, it is a cure from
The main point of the group is ethical - it is the image of primitivism, impersonality
and experimental creativity. The performances of the group take place
according to the logic of avoiding codes. The presentations are
physical texts, whose ways
of orthography and reading are kept within limits of real actions by the
groupmembers. Aesthetical and provocative challenges are represented in places,
where the Art World doesn't work.
