PERFORMANCES blow

Ελευθερία ή Θάνατος (Liberty or Death)

PERFORMANCE (cooperation with Pochanostra Athens seminar)

Poetry in a time of crisis. When I visited Athens, I remembered the economic crisis in my own country, Ecuador, in the 1990s. Like the current crisis in Greece, the economic collapse in Ecuador was largely the result of foreign debt that couldn't be paid back.

I applied paint to my silicone breasts, and violently collided with the Greek flag repeatedly. I marked the flag with my breasts.

Subsequently, I selected a person from the audience, whom I coerced into writing the text of the Greek flag on my body, close to my breasts: Έλευθερία ή Θάνατος ( Liberty or Death).

Territorial marking

 

My Silicone breasts serve me in this performance as a painting tool.

With my breast I leave footprints on the wall.

In thise subtle way I select my temporary territory in urban areas.

Hybrid Girl

 

Faceless and blind, like a strange thing, I move through the square. The tight latex suit, supplied covered my face. The heat dont let me breath. I moved in the area until my body limits.

 

 

 

Selfie Animal Angel  

 

The work is a fluid, if fleeting testimony of the lived world, where the distinction between what  is human and non-human is unstable.

Real time documentation of selfies will be placed on Jazmin Tacos Facebook page through out the performance, extending the space  of the action beyond the confines of the cemetery into the virtual world.
