Description by the Artist
The show subscribes to the genealogy of artists who approach the representation of the body and domesticity from feminist criticism. The installation reconciles the text, the own voice forbidden to women, with the work of knitting, historically assigned to them. It also transports to the public space the oppressive weights of the home and the masculine institution through the double symbolic gesture, but concrete, of loading a harness of structural rods that carries fragments of body as a place of meaning and its parts as symbolic elements.

The performance was held in 2016 in Santurce Es Ley 6, a yearly arts festival that stills run in Santurce, Puerto Rico.
