“I have to get on with my life”: Marni Kotak’s Found Performances from Birth to Present
Marni Kotak will present a new performance entitled "My Birth" at the Alice Chilton Gallery, this Friday Night, February 11th at 8pm, in conjunction with the closing of her exhibition. In this live action, Kotak will undergo a public rebirthing ritual on her recently deceased grandmother's bed that the artist and her lover broke during sex. Typical of contemporary rebirthing practices, Kotak will employ cyclic breathing techniques in order to tap into and release traumatic memories stored in the deep reaches of her body consciousness. Starting from the recent past and moving deeper into her memory towards her birth, Kotak will re-experience traumatic events in her life, live in front of the audience, while simultaneously shedding layers of clothing, symbolic objects, documents and other memorabilia that relate to the distressing events, until she is ultimately bare and re-born. Leading her through this action will be her boyfriend, Jason Robert Bell, who will be present as a doctor/shaman/spiritual guide.
Also available at the closing will be a limited-edition book with photos and written commentary about each of the artist’s performances from birth to present, and quotes by contemporary artists, curators and art writers, as well as members of the artist’s family, that speak to the concept of everyday life as art.
In her installation at Alice Chilton Gallery, I Have To Get On With My Life: Marni Kotak’s Found Performances from Birth to Present, Kotak presents the major events in her life from birth to present within the context of a bedroom in a working class, New England town. The exhibit is installed in the style of her parents’ New England beach house utilizing household items that have been altered or imprinted with family photos, and includes photo plaques commemorating the ‘major performances’ conducted for each year of her life from 1974-2010.

solo works and collaborations with non grata group
Their performances consist of lectures on the human condition, politics, economy and religion. They use the entire area they are performing to engage and interact with the audience. Their performances are wonderous spectacle lectures which delve deep into our psyches.
They are also extremely diligent about their documentation, with skillful photography and videotaping, which is edited and bound into large hard cover catalogues.
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 art starts from the point where the art world ends, NONGRATA has been a liberator, the orphic gap in this seemingly unalterable course, which however betrays us it is a cure from incest.
NON GRATA is an International performance group with over 40 members, mostly from Estonia but 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. NON GRATA has performed in Asia, Europe, South and North America with street actions and long lasting ghetto marathons.
