things that I can do

performance, 2011

My starting point was to play with and change the meaning of actions that comes from the use of everyday life objects. Each selected object in this work has a related action for use. I wanted to play with this by exchanging the object but keep on doing the same action. The duration of this performance was 60 minutes and took place as part of ‘Relocated’ International Performance Art Festival, in Valparaiso, Chile.

List of objects: table, chair, plant with pot, box, hammer, nails, brick, ball, bottle with body cream, bottle with water, broom, pile of paper, marker, water melon, baguette, pack of flour, bag of peanuts, duck tape, bucket, plate.
