Regional Crisis

Facet Gallery
Atlanta, United States.

In this performance, I continue exploring the Venezuelan refugee crisis through materials such as emergency blankets and arepa dough. I sought to create tension by exploring proximity with the audience and engaging in destabilizing actions involving interaction with the environment. During the 10-minute performance, I let the emergency blanket glide, jumped down the loft, emptied the corn flour on the blanket, mixed it with water and salt, and wrapped it up in the blanket, among other actions. The performance's climax was when I started to spin the wrapping while walking around the gallery, creating in the audience the anticipation of the blanket ripping and spreading the arepa dough all over.
