Performance, 24 Hours. Ciego de Ávila, Cuba. 2004

Performance that was made from 9:00 o'clock p.m. of November 8 up to 9.00 o'clock p.m. of the following day, in which I turned 18 years. It was conceived as initiation ritual, materialized in a process of interior and external cleaning. During this time I was in an alone room, doing fasting and prayer. Before leaving I clipped my fingernails, I shaved completely and I took a bath. A camera recorded the video that is presented as documentation of the work. Later on the interaction with family, friends and acquaintances, produced diverse reactions, which i consider live documentation of the work.
