Miss Distrito Capital
Mixed media installation: wearable sculptures and a three-channel video performance.
Published in Boston University's feminist journal Hoochie Reader, issue 3 (2019), pages 54-59.
Through heavy wearable sculptures and the use of my own body in a performance for the camera, this work points to the explicit and implicit violence of the beauty pageant culture in Venezuela. Three steel crowns and sashes are worn in a video-performance, during which I stand in a small podium trying to balance the heavy and sharp objects.
