I WAS THERE
Live media performance, 2014
In this live media performance art piece, the traditional languages of documentary and found footage manipulation are subverted and updated while blending with the surrealism of live media performance. In the performance I approach the past of western civilization by digitally and lively inserting myself into historical pictures and movies, focusing especially on the universe of female stereotypes.
I sabotage my past and culture in a metaphysical scenario that integrates live media and theatre, and I end up by loosing myself while becoming "part of the picture". I was there, because I’m here now. I was there, even before being an idea in the head of my century.
