PERFORMANCE AND MYTH IN HECTOR CANONGE

Héctor Canonge began to explore the possibilities of performance almost without being aware of it. With an extensive career in the field of new media and the art surrounding these technologies, and almost by inertia, he incorporates the use of his body in one of his installations, Schema CorpoReal, where his body covered by bar codes was scanned by the public so that, through texts that emerged referring to parts of his body, they ended up constructing a narrative of identity.

HACKING PERCEPTION

The experience proposed by Martina Servio Olavide is composed of two parts, one that invokes dying and the other, as an organic counterpoint, living. The first, "dying", is represented by a non-naturalistic play, while the second, "living", manifests itself as an exhibition in an art gallery. Through these two dimensions, the artist challenges the viewer to question their understanding of self and others, and to explore a wide range of interpretations.
