A manifestation for the quasi-public


A manifestation for the quasi-public situates the performance's estimation in an active process of degeneration while proposing to see ourselves in the perspectives of our lungs.


The smoke of the cotton factory chimneys became literally the breath of patriarchy.

The phantasm of modernism, the brutality of supremacy.

Now, they manifest themselves.

In the air…

The air is wrong. The air is bad. The air is dead.

Dead air, hereish and nowish, 

how does it belong to me?


virtually you are attached to the endurance of the otherwise.

The breathing in this breathing performance is the object of added value. 

Dead air is the context.

The air will not accumulate, nor reproduce itself, nor be air-conditioned.

It will be scorching.
