Timelessness

A Performance by Arantxa Araujo

During ZONA MACO ART WEEK 2022 for the show “LIVING IN TIME” organized by Live Art Mexico and curated by Samantha Ozer at MUSEO EX TERESA ARTE ACTUAL, INBA, MEXICO CITY.

 

In Timelessness (2022), a new performance created for this occasion, Arantxa Araujo, in collaboration with LUM Arte y Medios y Vicios Ocultos, explores the nature of time by embarking on and breaking cycles of fluidity. Following a set of prescribed actions centered around ritual involving melting wax and icy water, she constructs a mask only to remove it and leave a piece of herself behind. Set against the light interplay of the projection she has choreographed and sound Mariana Uribe has scored, the motions repeat and upend at different intervals and speeds, ultimately dissecting our perception of presence and existence.
