The Spectators


The Spectators is an expository essay, which approaches the performance possibilities that, by escaping what is well established and normative, can suggest a reality through sculptural objects and a kind of conceptual disobedience (one that goes from joking on Duchamp’s artistic freedom to the contradictions that bind us to aesthetics and politics). It is like a surrealist discourse that, beyond the burden of mental disorder, describes an unlikely situation, and endows action —temporally and sculpturally— with the ability to convey a particular truth.

Art for mice, instances of waiting, designs for rat monuments, sculptures to be devoured, a whiff of cheese, and an unusual situation: expecting to witness a real action that may never happen (a rat or mouse eating a cheese sculpture).
