The body talks without words. Performance art encrypts messages in the body and lets the audience figure them out through the body’s actions. 9COSSOS gives voice to those voiceless bodies. Screaming “Performance!” to reach everyone, overcoming performance’s art present moment to showcase the pieces in an exhibition format and at a timeless moment in time. 9COSSOS is a tribute to the body and to action art. Bodies that show themselves in deferred, conversing with the audience through space and time.

 Miguel Andrés

9COSSOS aims to give relevance to performance art with the human body as a means of expression, through an exhibition proposal consisting of the works of 9 national and international artists related to performance art.

Performance art emphasizes the action of the/the artist to produce art, rather than the production of an object itself. It is an ephemeral art and it is created knowing it won’t last, so it gains action freedom. Works ranging from records of past performances, such as photographs and videos, or installations, we also find works that come from research processes with the body itself as a means of expression.

Natalia Carminati

9 performance artists showcasing their artworks, which range from video, photography or object formats to Video-performance, Photo-performance, Videoart, or any other representation of performance action as an object. Several experiences, researching processes, actions, thoughts and concepts expressing through the time.

BBB Johannes Deimling

BBB JOHANNES DEIMLING. ‘One day I’m gonna make the onion cry #5’. The performance images of the artist are initially created purely visual but gradually access to all the senses to form a holistic view on the banalities of everyday life with all its challenges and changes.

CAMILA CAÑEQUE. Focus on the absence of the body with her work ‘Mattress’ . A photography of a simple mattress reminds us of the absence of her body. Pure concept.

MARC MONTIJANO. ‘Las dos naturalezas’ (Metamorphosis XXI). He works with the principle of the two natures of the human being: a material and a spiritual one.

MIGUEL ANDRÉS. ‘HIV Rejected’. Whole his body branded with a red stamp that announces ‘HIV Rejected’ reminds us of the stigma and rejection that people living with HIV continue to live in that situation. The artist experience in his HIV-positive body.

NATALIA CARMINATI. ‘Sand Walk’ is a multimedia project that integrates performance, installation, video live stream and sound experimentation. The performance consists of a rhythm of 64 actions performed “as if about to catch the train” (J. Cage). The intention of the body is to achieve emasculation by means of repetition in order to reach to the intrinsic gesture of each action, devoid of the performer’s personality and emptied of interpretation.

NINA MASKIELL & MISHKA BECKMANN. ‘Puncture’. Conceptually, it is an expression of self-exploration and aims to subvert and disrupt the body. Through movement and texture, the body is extended beyond its own perceived identity. A disfigured character exists in an undefined space exploring its form and potential for experimentation as the body prepares itself to become a testing ground for change.

OMAR JEREZ & JULIA MARTÍNEZ . ‘Il Corriere della Camorra’. They make us travel to Naples, birthplace of the Italian Camorra. In this artwork the artists denounce the criminal organization through the distribution of 6000 copies (estimated number of victims of the organization) of a fictitious newspaper that shows the havoc generated by the mafia.
