While in Winnipeg, Jozi will be exploring the relationship between the human body and nature, characterized by a shifting balance between belonging and alienation. As part of her research, she will conduct performance-based workshops in the city, inviting local communities of students and artists to participate (details TBA). She will then develop and perform public performances and build a body of performative mark-makings, paintings and objects that reflect on the relationship she develops with the city. This project seeks to re-examine our place in a constantly shifting, commodified, urban, increasingly compartmentalized lifestyle. While these aspects of our lives may seem to negate the body’s relationship with nature, they in fact create new ones that we often leave unexplored.
