  • The shaman who entertains the gods by dancing and music is the same man who entertains the audience through the more performative aspects of the seance. Here, it is ordinary people who exploit the situation, coming to attend a performance that in primis,has been organised for gods. This is a light editorial formula dealing with visual anthropology and anthropology of art in the field of oriental studies. Fragments of thoughts, ink and images, intentionally placed in a borderline.
