Live installation, performance. Duration: 2 hours. 5 man sowing 50 women in a farm field, Caracas, Venezuela, 2007. Photo: Ivor Lugo.
‘‘This installation was possible with the collaboration of the Venezualan Government and took place for the ‘‘III Encuentro de Arte Corporal, 2007’’ I hired 50 women to be planted by men and to pose still in a field in the city of Caracas, Venezuala, creating a contrast between the urban city ans this surrealistic image of planted women. The women as alive and fertile element is represented in this installation as a metaphor of the women’s reproduction, an image of hope to avoid their extinsion although it keeps on reproducing in a battle field or being used as a target of violence, on the development of women’s traffic in the Latin-American countries. This installation express the duality between life and death, the representation of the workship to the life, the image of women’s hamper in a field where it exhibits her body to be reproduced, annihilated and exploited.’’
