Gusztav Uto is a performance artist who has been making performance actions for many years, presenting his work throughout Europe, Asia and North America. He appeared in Toronto in 1996 as part of FADO’s Rencontre Performance Festival (in collaboration with Le Lieu). An artist of Hungarian background, he lives in Transylvania, Romania. Uto also worked throughout the 1990s as the organizer of the ANNART festival, an international outdoor performance art festival around a volcanic lake, considered one of the most important performance meeting places in Eastern Europe, until lack of funds has made it impossible to continue to produce the festival.
