I NEVER SAW HIM AGAIN
site specific installation, public action, performance
A projetc about public and privat space through a lovestory
During my stay in Cordoba, I discovered that the building I lived in was a former brothel. I investigated two concepts: the forbidden and violence. This work was inspired by the meeting I had with the Madame who ran this space. The theme of the conversation was the place as private-public use.On 6 December 2015, I decided to write some sentences in the Free Expression Column. This is one of the many additional locations in Cordoba where people can freely post any advertisement they want. Actually, only the city hall can choose which advertisements will remain there. This action took place from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. After two days, the glue and the political poster were affixed to the column. The gesture is an invitation to defend our freedom.On 12 December, the same text that was on the Free Expression column was continued on the skin of the guests for the opening event at the end of the residency. The performance was a generational encounter in which the word became a physical experience. Each word was tattooed on each person.
YO SOLO LLEVABA MI ABRIGO Y ROPA INTERIOR Y EN EL MERCADO TODOS ME COMO PULGAS MI AMANTE ES FABRICANTE DE ORO
I dress in my fur and only in my underwear I go to the market everyone eats me like fleas my lover is a gold producer
the text for the interior of the building was:
I ONCE HAD AN ITALIAN LOVER, MARCO. HE ASKED ME TO PICK HIM UP AT THE TRAIN STATION IN FLORENCE, I WENT. I WAITED FOR HIM. I DRESSED ONLY IN A FUR COAT AND UNDERWEAR, WE WENT INTO A BAR TO EAT SOMETHING THAT I SHOWED HIM AND THEN I NEVER SAW HIM AGAIN.
