  • About

In the middle of the space there is a big iron tin. In the corner there is a chair. I enter the space, sit on the chair, and take off my tennis shoes and socks. I am wearing an overcoat with three pockets: one internal and two external. I stand up and start a reflection about the action having as a main guideline the phrase “The action always leave traces, for beyond time and space. From one of the pockets in the overcoat, I take five firecrackers and align them on the floor, step on them, and blow them. Reflecting over the traces of the actions, I keep taking the firecrackers out and draw a pathway on which I can step upon. 

In this performance the philosophical text returns to my work. The philosophical thought again enters as the engine of my work where I unify the theoretical and practical interest of the action, be it for the action itself explored in the performance, or the action as reflection explored by means of the text.
