Catharsis with AñA Wojak

Catharsis* (from Greek κάθαρσις) is the purification and purgation of emotions through art, or any extreme change in emotion that results in renewal and restoration.

This experiential workshop channels an expressive response to grief… remembrance… celebration… connection with past loved ones through breath, movement & vocalisation.


AñA Wojak creates visually poetic works that resonate with a visceral depth, with a particular interest in site-specificity, durational performance, ritual and altered states.

Based in Northern Rivers NSW this Australian inter-disciplinary artist studied in Gdańsk, Poland and has been an exhibiting visual artist for over 40 years, a performance artist for 20. Their work has been short listed in numerous award exhibitions and their performance and video have been shown throughout Australia and internationally. Lamentations, her most recent cycle of performances has been enacted in Melbourne, Java, Malaysia and Singapore.

Energetic exchange & esoteric arts meld with a deeply rooted Eastern European sensibility and lush aesthetic across all their mediums.
