Summertime, 2016

Emilio Santisteban

Durational performance artist


and the living is easy.

Business is jumping,

and success is high.


Your daddy is wise,

and your ma is hot looking.

So hush little baby,

Don't you cry.


One of these mornings,

you are gonna rise up spinning.

Then take your wheels,

and take to the sky.


But until  that morning,

There is nothing can harm you,

with daddy and mommy

standing by.

Occasional performance on request


Anywhere in the city  I wash a car while singing  Summertime (modified lyrics). Washed cars are  for private use;  of  high standard brand,  line  better equipped  of its brand, or an average model but of the year. Projected as a performance  duration of occasional execution at the request of car owners.

If you (or a friend) "love" your car, this performance is for him (the car).
