Abstract

Elektra KB's statement of art practice. Her work uses a utopic-dystopic narrative construct between documentary and fantasy as a platform to investigate and reflect upon power struggles, sense of place, migration, gender, oppression, violence, and the spectaclist technological society. It draws a tension between different ‘realities’ aiming to deconstruct the language of neo-liberalism. The theocratic Republic of Gaia, an alternative world created as a safe space of resistance, and inhabited by its rebel autonomous counterparts The Catharas, is experiencing great social, geological and political upheaval.
