Series: I hate White: "Brothers", 2010

Cuerpo a cuerpo, festival de performance, september 2010. Series: “I hate white”, 2010 “Brothers” This piece is part of the series “I hate white”, where the artist explores ideas about demagoguery and violence. The concept of white has simbolized purity, virginity, cleanness versus black charge with negative connotations and red associated with the violence or the impure. In the piece Brothers, the artist plays in one hand with the colour and in the other with the concept of brotherhood, associated with nationalism. In any case the piece plays around preconceived ideas and attitudes.
