Legitimation, interdisciplinary performance 2011.
Interdisciplinary performance artist
In a wall of the Expressway located at blocks away from MAC-Lima appeared in 2010 a pint of author anonymous which in black capital letters said:
"MAC: SOCIAL PARASITES".
In 2011 the pint was imperfectly hidden with dark blue paint. What was left at the entrance to the Zanjón and could be seen from the Metropolitan's whereabouts in Las Flores had the shapes of a classic street political dispute on walls. From one side a cry addressed to a post-oligarchic institution of the official local system of art; on the other, the stifling defense of said institution.
The obvious theme of the cries thus silenced was the location of the
MAC-Lima private museum in a public area claimed by
neighborhood groups of the Barranco district outside the
interests of the art system. Said neighbors at the time were
branded as "ignorant" by groups interested in the
artistic system, ignorant of the topics legal, pecuniary and community law in complex discussion.
This is a "found" performance that occurred in the urban ritual of the street, a ritual that establishes, in an interdisciplinary act of performance, a conflict of social illegitimacy that the artistic elite tries to ignore.
