Non Grata

NON GRATA is a Performance Group from Estonia.
To the group belongs around 40 members from mostly from Estonia, also from
Quebec, Finland, Sweden, Germany, USA, France, Chile. 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 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
incest. 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.
