Jija Sohn

She takes a seat really close to you, lights your cigarette and fills your glass. You feel at ease: “Welcome in the Kyabakura bar”, she says. She has an intelligent conversation with you, and you let go all of the stress of the last days. She caresses your arm, your ego, your manhood. You are ready to be seduced. But what you don’t know, is what this she hides underneath her apparent façade.

Kyabajō is a visual performance in which the raw side of man is celebrated and the seedy embraced. Surrender to a game of oppression, power and liberation.
