Hiding places

Performance. Colour photography, 35mm film
30 x 40 cm

IIn 1996 I performed the action, Escondrijos, which consisted of hiding among the foliage of a tree inside a sculpture-nest called Metamorfosis, a work created using natural materials based on the volume of my body. The piece blends in with the plane trees in autumn in the area around Zubieta (Basque Country) and creates a place where you can take shelter and keep guard from.

“26. Hiding places there are innumerable,
escape is only one,
but possibilities of escape,
again, are as many as hiding places”
Franz Kafka, the Zürau Aphorisms.
