Installation / Performance. 2014
Atmosphere created to play with the spectator.
AYRM? Looking for the fissure, this installation is going to spaces that are left behind in the daily life, and there is where the exploration starts. Objects from the everyday life will be transformed into sounds, images, spaces and prosthesis. It is an opportunity to propose a parallel place (a fantasy) evolved amidst ordinary elements of a big city. The piece establishes an interplay of relations with the spectator exalting his presence. The objective is to build an atmosphere where the proposal is to stimulate the senses and where the author has created a space for the spectator to inhabit this new creation.
AYRM? Is more than a question, it is an expression that suggests an adversarial reference to the "ready made” wondering if we are pieces that are reused even in a work of art. It is an encounter and an experience to be lived within a work of art.
The floor is full of wires that hinder the movement. Light sculptures shape the space as that move. A character directs the performance. His body is filled with prosthesis, like prosthesis for disabled person, but made rom recycled objects. His voice is also a prosthesis -a recording made in the past but communicates in the present with the audience, taking them through a series of "orders" to transform the space and experience.
When leaving, the spectator discovers a set of scales that was once projected into the room in closed loop. The notions of intimacy, control and security are questionned.
