IN MEMORIAM
12.05.04 - 05.06.04

IN MEMORIAM was the performance we did for the total destruction of the wall of OBITUARY, entered in its center with the transparent tablet "IN MEMORIAM", a process that remains as a constituent part of the work. In this art action a squad of masons performed the systematic scrapping of the wall built our presence in that ritual, kneeling, dressed identically and still, we watch the process of their disappearance.We were two women reclining in a passive and resigned over the wall, while the other side the men came to the destructive action of this, emulating similar behavior in many traditional societies, particularly religious. The disappearance of the wall and the metaphors of the process is made visible and public to have as witnesses to the workers and spectators, as relatives while accomplices in the destruction, accompanied us in grief.
