Venezuelan Luxury II

This performance is a part of a series of works in which I develop an improvisational structure using objects and elements that refer to the Venezuelan political and socioeconomic crisis. The live intervention seeks to create a sense of instability, and jeopardy, in which solemnity and humor coexist.  The items used were scarce in Venezuela by the time. The performance starts when I entered the space with a suitcase. I opened it and I pulled out a package of diapers, followed with an improvisation with the objects. Then I took off my clothes and poured oil over me and the space in a ritual manner. I ended the performance by carrying a pot with boiling water and throwing it violently on the floor.
