Donna Kukama’s works unfold as performances, videos. texts and sound installations. In the shape of laboratories for creative research they aim at a fictionalization of reality. Donna Kukama occupies existing canons by using performance as a strategy to invent and apply methods to evoke the unexpected. For her, performance can be “a medium of resistance against already established ‘ways of doing’.”
Donna Kukama’s performance for the Moscow Biennale will only be acted out once during the ten days. Her impact on the sociopolitical settings of the biennale could unfold as a poetic gesture, an addition of oddness to the situation or a disruption.
