News: Kata Mejia in NY and at RSG

I am please to announce that Philadelphia based/Colombian born performance artist Kata Mejia will be debuting her latest performance/installation "Healing" at NY's LAB Gallery, June 26th-29th.
Here is a bit about Healing...

Healing is a performance-installation which represents a breaking point with life caused by sudden, violent death. Symbolic, ritual actions expressing the pain and chaos this wrenching of life creates will be performed along with those expressing transcendence and healing of the departed soul and the loved ones who remain.

This performance commemorates the first anniversary of the death of the artist’s little brother, who was kidnapped and murdered in Colombia by the FARC terrorist guerrillas.


Kata Mejia is no lightweight performance artist. Her work is raw emotion played without pretense. She attacks her concerns with everything she has: her body, mind and soul. That attack is dramatic, sometimes violent and controversial.

Kata will bring a performance (as yet undecided) to RSG, August 1st-4th. Make sure you get on the mailing list for announcements. This is not to be missed.

If you can't wait, we will be running her video reel covering several previous performances on Saturday night during the Hamada Reception. Or Stop by anytime and ask to see one.
