PERFORMANCES Actually

Sugar

Project curated by Georgios Papadopoulus © 2016

 

 

Since to financial collapse in 2009, Greece looks more like a Latin American country, with capital controls foreign supervision and dilapidating infrastructure.

Jazmin Taco’s video Sugar revolves around this process by Parading a symbol of Sucre the original Ecuadorian currency, which was replaced by the dollar in 2000, after a devastating financial crisis.

 

The similarities between Ecuador and Greece, Quito and Athens do not stop in the financial crisis and the phasing out of their national currency.

 

A troubled past of colonialism, corruption, occupation but also a long history and culture.

Taco’s work goes beyond the economic domain and raises also tension in gender, sexuality, race, and the role of culture in the situation of crisis.

 

Money is in the background of all these issues, reducing the qualities of different social expressions in the absolute quantity of value.

Liberté, égalité, fraternité

Project collaboration between Performance artist Jazmin Taco and

Photographer Nadia Rabhi © 2016

 

Jazmin Taco performs at Trocadero.

She used the French flag and connected powerful words onto

her body at her “liberté, égalité, fraternité” performance.

 

Jazmin selects this specific words which represent the three elements of the revolutionary motto, liberté (freedom: blue), égalité (equality: white), fraternité (brotherhood: red).

 

She paint her breast with red lipstick „brand Clinic“ and collapse

onto the French flag until the french flag collapsed too.

 

Subsequently She fix the french flag strongly on the wall and

write with her red lipstick on her torso Liberte!.

 

Jazmin Taco analyzes the circumstances of the Turistic Paris City

when there is a political and emotional fear by creating a new work

which include language, thought, action and Photography with a

powerful message such as “liberte, égalité,fraternité”.

 

This work was created on the 22 of March 2016,

when three coordinated bombings occurred in Belgium.

 

On the 22 of March the Paris citizens were in panic because the news shared that there was a Link between the Brussels „22.03.2016“ and the

Paris „13.11. 2015“ Attacks.

 

In this day there was policeman all over Paris especially at the Tourist places, Main train Station and Airport but to our great surprise not during the performance.
