Witnessed a breathtaking performance today. The ‘Butterfly Dance’ by Shusaku. As an ode to his wife, the lovely artist Toshiko, for supporting her husband to the fullest is his arts and ambitions, for so many years. She made the costume years ago and it has been shown on big exhibitions. Visit WM Gallery before the show ends to see the amazing folded paper artworks from her hand (right now in my insta-story a small treaser) 🖤 ps yes, she makes killer sushi aswell 🙏🏼 #superwoman

This week's images from JUSTMAD Art Fair during Fredy Solano's, performance "One over another" in collaboration with Miguel Scheroff.
During the performance an artist lies on the ground and the other artist stands on him to paint a mural from beginning to end, creating an exchange of roles during the mural process. "One over another" investigates the spirit of the artist and its limits, denouncing through this action the continuous abuse of power that we live in today's society according to Solano.
Both artists are represented by Suburbia /Archivo de Artista 2017.

Durante el performance, un artista yace en el piso y el otro artista se para sobre él para pintar un mural de principio a fin, creando un intercambio de roles durante el proceso. "Uno sobre otro" investiga el espíritu del artista y sus límites, denunciando a través de esta acción el continuo abuso de poder que vivimos en la sociedad actual según Solano.

🌊The rest energy, a performance from 1980 by Marina Abramović et Ulay
💖 In 1980, collaborators and lovers Abramović and Ulay each grasped one side of a loaded bow and arrow and leaned back. Pulled taut, the arrow was aimed directly at Abramovic’s heart. They held the position for an excruciating four minutes, then let the bow fall to the ground. The performance art duo’s partnership lasted from 1976 through 1988, during which time they realized some of the medium’s most daring, emotionally fraught, and disquieting works.
