INTI-mate HealinG is a public performance installation by artist, activist and curator Va-Bene Elikem Fiatsi (also known as crazinisT artisT) that expands the discussion about bodies seen as sick, imperfect, illegal and uncultured. The performance challenges notions about the representation of marginalised groups in mainstream media and the discriminatory policies that lead to economic, religious, medical and social exclusion. In INTI-mate Heal-inG, the audience is invited to participate in a collective, embodied solidarity and healing body care, and to reflect on their own vulnerabilities, fears and privileges.
