Burst (2011)

3-channel projection and 3 glass jars. 3'18'' (looped). Color, Sound. 200 cm x 113 cm.

Referring to Bachelard’s topo-analysis, Burst is a performance that questions the notion of spaces of intimacy through the exploration of two places of the artist’s childhood:  a bathroom and a washing house. The performance is divided in three actions with balloons that together form a ritual: blowing, bursting and collecting. Through them, the artist expands the spatial, temporal and mental limits of her body, the initial intimate space, in the outer space.
