Hector Canonge (United States) is an interdisciplinary artist, curator, and cultural entrepreneur. His work explores issues of identity construction, gender, psychogeography, and migration. He has exhibited and presented around the globe and is founder of ARTerial Performance Lab (APLAB), among others. He teaches Media Arts at City University of New York.


RUPTURE

RUPTURE reflects on notions of decolonization, an idea that has populated the consciousness of many people in Latin America. Through a series of actions that evoke the (im)possibility of turning back on history, accompanied by text and sound narratives, Canonge questions the position of indigenous peoples in the 21st century.


TRANSFERENCE

TRANSFERENCEis a public intervention pushing the boundaries of physical contact and psychological connection. In asking strangers to carry him while he sings fragments of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Canonge breaks the mode of delivering a formal speech and commits to delivering the most basic universal human condition: empathy.

Leonardo Salazar (Chile) is an artist, teacher, and cultural manager. His works are a permanent approach to the condition of site-specific, which is tied to a concern on urban space. He has experimented and collaborated with artists in Encuentros, festivals, residencies, and actions as part of El Cubo, which operates in Barrio Yungay, in Santiago, Chile.


MECHANICS
A performance approaching the empirically constructed imaginary, crossing flows and subjectivities that resignify the reality and the threads that make us beings, subjects, and bodies. There will be small performative gestures around the Monumento al Roto Chileno that allude to autobiographical materialities as sociocultural readings of the origin of performance.

Wagner Rossi Campos (Brazil) teaches Fine Arts at the School of Fine Arts at the Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil. He holds degrees in Printing, Graphic Design, and Contemporary Fine Arts from the Escola Guignard–UEMG. He explores the body in contemporary society and is founder of PERPERDICULAR, a project examining the artist’s multiple identities: researcher, performer, writer, etc.


THE STONE PATH

The territorial space of the body goes beyond itself in order to build an aesthetic installation and political environment, to activate individual and shared proposals. Rocks and plants compose this context of shamanic awareness, where people are invited to experience conditions that may lead to other perceptions of the environment and themselves.
 

SOME IDENTITY

In an open space, I will walk through the square with a red cape with images of the South American flags. I will ask the people: can you identify the South American countries flags? Which relationships do these territorial and divisional images establish with our everyday context? How do we relate with flags and their symbologies?
