Piel con Piel

2021 | Performative Installation |

Parallel Vienna 2021 | Vienna, Austria

This was an intervention in the former obstetrical hospital "Semmelweisklinik" in an underwater delivery room.
Here I developed an installation that subtly forced the audience to engage in the performative action of transgressing boundaries and to be caressed.

A very important aspect of this work is that a large part of the visitors were actually born or gave birth in that hospital, some of them even in that same room.

 

This work was inspired by my discoveries about the somatic memories of my birth, which turned out to be accessible through my skin.
