exhalar

This piece comes from the performance “Palabras olvidadas” (December 2020). The action consisted in taking the pages out of an old book which belonged to the family library and creating a spiral around me with its pages. During the action, I let the book take a breath, which had not been possible for many years since it had been read for the last time. Once this performance was over, I wondered what would happen if I forced the book to expel all the air it had inhaled by exerting force on it.
