Within the framework of the First Encuentro de Performance, in the context of the sample Anamorfosis, MAC, 1998
I use newspaper paper, which I extend geometrically on the floor of the central hall of the MAC, then I dismantle everything and put the remains in the holes of my body: my ears, my nose, my mouth, my sex until they are completely sealed. A parallel with the mythological being the Imbunche.
The Imbunche is a figure that is part of the mythology of the Mapuche people. The Imbunche is a being that is enclosed in itself, that has lost its will, its sense organs are sealed, in this way it was dominated by the Kalkus: sorcerers of black magic.
I'm transforming this myth, choosing an unprecedented language, place and action.
Seen from the current perspective the Imbunche is an archetype: the dominated. I chose it because it extraordinarily visualizes what happens with the current human being. That is, a being that is dominated by means of an avalanche of distorted information; that alienates it, that makes it part of the masses. I have chosen the dark, the unconscious material in this phenomenon.
The information exposed here as power. An important factor is the historical context in which I lived, a dictatorial state where the underlying ideal is the maximum domination and control.
