Anonymous Boh


solo works and collaborations with non grata group


Friday - Sunday 1:00 - 6:00 pm
Opening reception: Friday, November 12 
7:00 - 9:00 pm

The Alice Chilton Gallery is presenting an exhibition of new documentation, limited edition photographs, videos and catalogues by the Anonymous Boh of the Non Grata Group, which consists of over 40 international and anonymous members. ACG opened in 2009 with a show of works by Non Grata, and I believe it is important to keep up with this group, as they continue to expand their influence within the art world.

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. 

The main point of the ANONYMOUS BOH'S WORK is ethical - it is the image of primitivism, impersonality and experimental creativity. When working collaboratively, the  performances of the Non Grata Group take place according to the logic of avoiding codes. The presentations are physical texts, whose ways of orthography and reading are kept within limits of reactions by the group members. Aesthetical and provocative challenges are represented in places Where the Art World doesn’t work

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.
