CRA’P collaborations 2018

CRA’P presents “Quién no es, no ha” by Janet Parra

A displaced body carries a fixation: the repetitive insistence of an accumulation of finished ideas, to tow memory through space, because the body is memory. And if we erase it’s memory? A body that is built in that space of forgetfulness, restoring its time in between, allowing itself to write in the loss.

This work is the continuation of a research process that studies the perceptive states within the body. How those states are constructed and what spatial and temporal paths they draw, what their choreography is. How does the body fix the time? I research ways to articulate and develop thinking towards the visible.

* The poet William Blake wrote that eternity is in love with the work of time. So let’s look for the body’s eternity in time and its impossibility.
