Recipe for Performance
In her interdisciplinary art practice, Fatric focusses are the complex relationships between colonialism and pollution. During her residency at Copenhagen Contemporary she did a walking performance adressing issues of migration and colonialism. In her performance recipe, she asks the participants to research and perform a near extinct animal from each of the seven continents.
