The series “I in Togetherness”, a 52 Week long Performative act that happened on social networks with an intense involvement of the audiences (virtual) by artist Mee Jey and her partner Jey Sushil. The whole series was an act of self-evolvement and self-realization with a keen focus on their personalities as an individual, and as couple.
Body is the primal source for celebration and expression in the visual arts. It has always played an important role in art making. Using artists body itself became a trend of art making in the 20th century. The result of the 20th century search of the artists for an exceptional new material was Body.
It is more or less accepted that Performance Art cannot do without the human body. The developments in performance art research has been motivated by the study of gesture, posture and, the sound of silence, and progressed into different areas of body investigation. This is the platform for a string of theoretical works in constant evolution and transformation. On the other hand, in many live performances, the essence is not what is said or shown, but how and what is being communicated through the body as membrane of spirit, voice, sound, said or written words, and video images are adopted only as vehicle for a poetic expression.
