Miss Distrito Capital (2018)
Mixed media installation: wearable sculptures and a three-channel video performance.
This work points to the explicit and implicit violence of the beauty pageant culture in Venezuela through wearable sculptures and the use of my own body in a performance for the camera. Three steel crowns and sashes are worn in a studio video-performance, in which I stand in a small podium and try to balance the heavy and sharp objects.
