Fortune PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Jatun Risba’s actio ‘Fortune’ enriches the gaming exhibition ICE London 2019. The work raises the question: “Can we devise and play games where all are winners?”

 

EXCEL LONDON, UK, – February 5,6 & 7, 2019 –

At the exhibition ICE London 2019, the world’s largest gathering of Gaming professionals, Jatun Risba will hunt and share a fortune with a durational art piece that stops time.

The artist Jatun Risba will perform ‘Fortune’ every day starting 11:00 and continuing until the public closure of the show (at 18:00 on Tue/Wed and at 16:00 on Thu). The total duration of the work, divided into the three days of gaming exhibition, will amount to 19 hours of performance.

Jatun Risba will wear a gold full-body catsuit and will carry a black travel case in the hands. The costume and the physical actions will capture visitors’ attention. After identifying “the right spot”, Jatun Risba will collapse onto the floor, open the travel case over the head and wash the face off under a stream of casino chips. The artist will then remain lying still on the floor, immobile, like a showpiece for the rest of day.

ABOUT THE WORK

In the work ‘Fortune’ Jatun Risba ponders – : “What is a fortune? Your thinking-body is gold, yet you take it for granted or overidentify with it. Attachment to external goods causes a loss of sight and balance. How can you cultivate a fortune within? What is the path to your treasure house of infinity?”

The work stages an opposition between the material appeal of (shiny, vertical and tactile) casino currency and the detached anonymity of money. Both currencies have no intrinsic value in themselves, yet have a tremendous impact on our lives. The actio ‘Fortune’ explores how we can embody, create and share a fortune in healthy and responsible ways?
