Regional Crisis

Facet Gallery
Atlanta, United States.

In this performance, I continue exploring the Venezuelan refugee crisis through the use of materials such as emergency blankets and the arepa dough. I sought to create tension by exploring proximity with the audience and by engaging in de-stabilizing actions, involving interaction with the environment. During the 10 minutes 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 climax of the performance 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.
