Six artists met in a Transylvanian village in the summer of 2018 to develop therapies that can function also as artworks. The participants were patients, healers and artists at the same time, developing their own artwork/therapy and approach to the body and healing. A decisive factor in its initiation was Alina Popa’s hopeless chronic disease. After Unsorcery and Black Hyperbox, The Clinic continues the “artworlds” idea of mildly choreographed processes that are establishing as artworks not only products but production, research, curating, art making, forms of living - artworks as artworlds. Clinica is not so much about art being therapy, art therapy, but more about therapies becoming art. Contexts that don't belong together are overlapped – the art space becomes a clinic where esthetic healing and performative therapies can happen. Clinica reconnects art and healing, which was the case for the most part of our history.
