Jen DeNike presents a new performance piece ’Iemanjá’ at Art Public. Ritual life formed the basis of most ancient cultures as a codification of memory and the transmission of cultural values, yet few people today understand the meaning and origins behind most ceremonies. The centre of Jen DeNike’s the performance at Art Public forms a star-shaped sand-castle on the beach, around which seven women worship the Brazilian seagoddess Iemanjá, with dance and song. They provide a platform for the celebration of a live experiential space whose focus lies in evolving a social relationship between the audience and performers, while maintaining a sense of visual aestheticism and spectacle.
