The air that you breath is dense, it hurts the nose, it tightens the lungs.
The weighted atmosphere, something rots around us, the violence stinks.
¿Do I breathe death or is it she who breathes me?
An pungent performance. My body remains naked, passive, upon a base that hides the decomposing bodies of eight rats. The audience perceives the odor from the moment they enter the exposition space, but they do not know from where exactly it is emanating. ¿From my body?
(The rats used in this performance were not sacrificed, they were recycled from the city dump.)
