Perra Egoista (2011-2013)
Public performance and textile installation
La Plata, Argentina
Performed by Emilia Benitez
How many repetitions of a gesture does it take to obliterate that gesture?
Perra Egoista emerges from an obsessive necessity to make for the sake of making. Textile forms were created through a process of indulgence, accumulation, repetition and embellishment. A textile installation of amorphous pods and beads is used as a backdrop for a masked body to unleash an absurdist dance that oscillates between belonging and dislocation.
