Live performance on video, 3’1″.
“The Experience Protocols Project” consists of performing in different Contemporary Art exhibitions. In the video included in the exhibition, entitled “Body, therefore I experience”, the performative intervention took place on the occasion of my visit to Fundación PROA, in Buenos Aires, at the end of 2019, in a retrospective by Dan Flavin, just before the pandemic began.
The purpose of the performance intervention is creating an experimental dynamic for the body when visiting an exhibition: the artist performs in the exhibition space developing new dialogues with the works of other artists, and experiencing the exhibition environment in a more active and poetic way. Currently, we know that the average contemplation of a work of art in a cultural institution is 20 seconds. As a visual artist and educator, the artist studies other ways of relating to contemporary art, using the artwork itself as a device for this.
