Good Deal

Good Deal is a site-specific intervention, realized at the beach of Playa Blanca, a little village in the Moroccan shore of the Strait of Gibraltar. A half-open door between Africa and Europe.

Dichotomy Of A Good Deal
Built borderline over the borderline. Divided lives go away. Unique, different, similar, human. The identity of the mass. The mass economy. The patterns. The repetitions. The cycles... We have arrived at the end of the beginning. We are like the stones, marked by the test of time and experience. Our society is changing with the velocity of a rock, consumed by the air, water and wind. We are the nature. We are powerful. We create artificial intelligence while crippling human one. Under development. Constant. Faster. More. Better... The future. The instilled fear is instructing goods for the market. Programmed and precise. The order. Our trace is deleted before we take a footstep.

Is the whimper a form of dialog?

While trying out the stiffness of my mold, a group of teens spending the day at the beach decided to take part and intervened, by covering first the bust with seaweed and later, by building over an entire body. They were saying 'she' was prettier being complete.

The day I started with the whole line, I was nicely surprised, by the generous help of Ismael. He had arrived from Tangier with some friends to swim but instead he preferred to stay with me, helping me to fill the mold with sand, which was quite a hard job. We built together 34 pieces, talking about life, women and men, religion and politics.

Y Me Visto De Plumas

'And I dress myself with feathers” is a project of photo-video performance materialized not through a photo-videographic studio session, but through a live action open to the public. Conceptually the project raises new questions on the recurrent topic of documentation in live arts and action/performance art in particular.' (+)
