Territori Ibiza is an international meeting specializing in performance art. Since 2020, the island has been bringing together an outstanding selection of artists from all over the world who work with the body, live and action arts. Territori is a space for committed creation, open to new processes and emerging and local talent.
At Territori we seek to shorten distances and lose the fear of the living arts. Performance art proposes an unrepeatable experience that connects the audience with artists through the body and in a specific context linked to the territory. Without an audience there is no performance.
9 days of immersion thanks to a carefully planned program, professional workshops, mentoring, documentaries, talks, exhibitions, and workshops.
Territori in Ibiza. Ibiza is Territori.
Tras muchos meses de trabajo intenso con un equipo muy dedicado, hemos presentado la III edición del festival internacional de performance art @territorifestival, un proyecto de iniciativa propia el cual dirijo y comisario. Sucede en la isla de Ibiza, España.
Nos encantaría contar con tu presencia en vivo y en directo. Si no puedes venir, iremos compartiendo en nuestras rrss las diferentes actividades. El cuerpo importa, porque es en el cuerpo donde sucede la vida y en nuestro caso, el arte!
Philemon Mukarno is an Asian Performance Artist, was born and raised in Indonesia, at this moment based in Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
After graduating from Codarts-University for the Arts, in the Netherlands, and having specialized in the Japanese Butoh Dance, he encountered another dimension in his self, driven by something deep and powerful. He expresses this in an art form so-called Performance Art / Live Art / Body Art. It is an investigation of the body to address the subconscious. A deepening of his consciousness. The art brings him closer to his own body and to the awareness of my own thoughts and processes.
Articulating this awareness through performance helps to uncover his connection to the environment, the earth, and my ancestors. In a society full of traps to confuse, numb and desensitize, his work uses and acknowledges the density and complexity of the human structure by exploring its innards, its thought processes, its energy, and its capacity for life: blood, naked body, sexuality, gender, fetishes, water, organs, bones, energy, thought. The performances will compel him to go deeper inside and leave his comfort zone. He projects shapes from within. His work is deliberately dark, vulnerable, and often sensual. The hope is to destroy frameworks that have warped my body and self-image as a way to repair and prepare for a new beginning.
