Art is not only a decorative object

The debate on the usefulness of art is vague. But there is one thing clear: “art is not only a decorative object” or a speculative act. There is something more, you need to have something more. Soul, sentiment, connections, discussions, messages, thoughts and as many as human beings are capable of feeling.

In this way, using art as an excuse, it confronts the classic formats with the human body to lay claim to the performance as the art which it is. Only the essence of the human being.

El debate acerca de la utilidad del arte es prolijo. Pero hay una cosa clara: ‘el arte no es sólo un objeto decorativo’ o un activo especulativo. Hay algo más, tiene que haberlo. Alma, sentimiento, conexión, mensaje, debate, pensamiento y tanto como el ser humano sea capaz de sentir.

Y así, utilizando el arte como excusa se contraponen los formatos clásicos con el cuerpo humano para reivindicar la performance como el arte que es. Solo la esencia del ser humano.
