Buenos Aires, 2004
Concept of the video:
“Contemporary Bricolage” gives an account of the new codes and situations in the city of Buenos Aires from the break suffered between 2001 and 2002. Its marginal inhabitants, their activities to survive, the needs of the people, beyond the materials. The circumstances that life implies in a big city in crisis.
In the video performance, the artist, through the collection of cardboard, paper, string, stones, packaging ribbons, bags, food and soap bubbles, reaffirms her work on the concept of extended ecology and produces an artistic document that about direct testimony.
