++++ video in preparation ++++

My contribution to the book “El cos fragmentat – Una genealogia de l’art espanyol dels noranta“, made by the people who attended the course organized by MACBA (Museum of Contemporary Art, Barcelona) during the months of March and April 2019.

Thanks to the companions of this fantastic adventure, to Imma Prieto, to Myriam Rubio, to the organizing group and to Do the print.

 

Why
Each body, although apparently similar, is different, and this shows in small details, in fragments.
Fragments of experiences are those that can completely change life.
This difference, this human touch capable of making a “serial product” a unique “object”, is at the base of performance.

In summary
The performance consists of acting on a blank page inserted in each copy of the publication.
The idea is to manually intervene in each copy and delete a fragment from this page.
Each fragment is different from the other, as well as in the end each book that becomes a single copy.Then the books are ready to be distributed.

Everything is filmed.

Duration
One session, during the time necessary to intervene in each of the 50 printed copies, without touching in any way the other pages related to the work of other people.
In the publication there is only printed the link to this web page where you can watch the video of the performance.
