BLESSED BE THE WITCH_ES
A performance act by Vala T. Foltyn and Maja Chiara Faber is an experiential portal for the community of the ghosts, witches, and vampires. As a queer witch Foltyn choreographes rituals as reanactments of the difficult pasts in the search for queer futures. Thinking with Belgian anthropologist Vinciane Despret, she creates a non-hostile environment for the dead and invites those who are alive to walk in between the realms, opening and speaking with the archives. For this occasion, Foltyn invited a fellow artist witch Maja Chiara Faber, who together with Foltyn co-hosted many events at Lamella the queer house in Kraków and is known for her sound exorcisms and queer tarot readings. A former home of Vala T. Foltyn – a century old historical villa in Kraków and a refuge for queer community will be relocated again to unfold its intimate stories, scents and sounds of resistance on the site of Art Hub Copenhagen.
