Good Deal

Is the whine a form of dialog?
Site-specific intervention
May 2015

Blanka Palamós i Glaramunt gave me a plastic woman mannequin to work with during one year. It was one of 10 pieces which were received by 10 different artists, in order to experience a coexistence with the object. In her project COSSIC (cos-intervenció-convivència) I was allowed to interact, transform or destroy the object if I felt the need to do so.

For almost 8 months I was unable to do anything else than observe how my dog was barking with fear this plastic mutilated woman. No arms, no legs, no head. Just plastic sexual parts. Well, maybe I can work with the symbol, but still the plastic was keeping me still and disgusted.

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.

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.

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. We built together 34 pieces.

Dichotomy Of A Good Deal
Built borderline over the borderline. Divided lives goes 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's 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 footstep.

Dicotomía del Buen Trato  
La frontera construida sobre la frontera. Vidas divididas que parten. Únicas, diferentes, similares, humanas. La identidad de la masa. La economía de masas. Los moldes. La repetición. Los ciclos... Llegamos al final del principio. Somos como las piedras, marcadas por el paso del tiempo y la experiencia. Nuestra sociedad cambia con la velocidad de una roca, consumida por el aire, el agua y el viento. Somos la naturaleza. Somos poderosos. Creamos inteligencia artificial mientras mutilamos la humana. En desarrollo. Constante. Más rápido. Más. Mejor... El futuro. El miedo inculcado adiestra para ser buen mercado. Programado y preciso. El orden. Nuestra huella es borrada antes de dar el paso.
¿Es el gemido forma de dialogo?
