Maurizio Mancioli and Lillian Hastings (Brazil)

OXYGEN (2021)

4 minutes

The action is inspired by a scuba diving rescue procedure, in which a diver shares his regulator with another diver who is out of air. This performance evokes various elements of our times: the confinement; a sickness that affects breathing and the dispute for oxygen in hospitals; the need for discipline and courtesy necessary for people to survive in the same place. It also suggests, through the density of water, a sensation that time is suspended, as days seem to repeat themselves over and over again.

Maurizio Mancioli was born in 1970 in Switzerland and he lives in Brazil since 1994. Visual artist, works with photography, mixed-medium, video, performance and performance for camera. He showed his works in museums and galleries mainly in Brazil, but also in Europe and Canada.

In his works, Maurizio examines issues related to isolation, entrapment, and memory.

EXERCISE AS CONTROL # 03 (2021)

12 minutes

An action based on Step Piece (1970) by Vito Acconci. The action of going up and down a scaffolding step as corporal and mental training. Using the Fibonacci sequence, the artist determines the number of ti¬mes to repeat the action. Counting each time she goes up and down the step has a different meaning. The action’s repetition re¬sults in an altered state due to the performer’s physical and mental exhaustion. It demonstrates self-control, as well as emphasizing the element of repetition in everyday life, creating a poetic absence.

Ana Montenegro (Brazil/Argentina)

VÉRTIGO (20180

14 minutes

In a house in ruins, inside a room that has a large hole in the center, the artist walks along the walls, resting her hands on them.

When we don’t feel safe because the world is spinning, we have to lean against the walls, cling to something solid so as not to collapse in our rubble.

Ana Montenegro lives between Brazil and Argentina. Visual artist and performer, with studies in architecture, scenography and Peircean semiotics.  She develops her work in live performance art, video and photography.

She has presented her performances and videos in Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Ecuador, Bolivia, Italy, Serbia and Canada.

Elvira Santamaría (México)

PARÁBOLA IX – III El Puente de la Mujer (2016)

10 minutes

In this work, carried out in an emblematic place in Buenos Aires, the artist travels the entire length of the bridge rolling on her body, stopping in front of the lights to execute small, precise and adjusted gestures. Intensely poetic and minimalist, this piece constitutes a powerful reflection on the lights and shadows that still weigh on the condition of women in today’s world.

Elvira Santamaría was born in 1967 in Mexico City. She studied in Antigua Esmeralda and she did Master of Visual Arts studies at the University of Ulster, Northern Ireland, in 2009. In 1994 she was invited to the Québec International Performance Meeting. Since then, she has presented her work at festivals, art centers, galleries, museums and public spaces in Mexico, Europe, North America, Asia and Latin America.

MUGRE (1999 – 2004)

3 minutes

The action is performed with a homeless person, who the artist carries on his shoulders, and who uses as a mere instrument to draw a line of dirt on the white wall of the museum. In a second moment, the homeless person is deposited on a wooden base located on the floor, and is used violently, holding his feet, to make a painting or drawing on the support. The work reveals the explicit violence of Colombian society towards its « disposables », its citizens relegated to exclusion and marginalization, while critically alludes to the very functioning of the art system.

ROSE-ROSE (2001 – 2004)

3 minutes

Dressed in white, sitting on a metate, barefoot, the artist holds a large bouquet of fresh and thorny roses in his hands, until he hurts himself and bleeds; then confused the obsessive fall of broken stems, loose leaves and red petals pressed strongly with some drops of blood falling on the white ground. Thus, the artist’s hands are lacerated with random drawings made of scratches, in the manner of an illegible, uncertain and sick cartography of pain.
