4:30-5pm. Sound Art Installation and Performance
"MORE" is both a sound art installation and a performance. Using food as a metaphor, the piece is a criticism of the current sociopolitical system where money, self-interest, violence, success and power are social vales that legitimate invasive, perverse and egoistic behaviors. Our model is always asking for more money, more success, more materialistic consumption, more beauty, more strong courage while human values and art are losing their presence in the world. The performance consists of a woman ("prey") that will be wearing a suit completely full of food and 5 people ("hunters") around her will do their best in order to satisfy their thirst for violence, sexual necessities, parasite or other egoistic behaviors. At the same time a sound installation will take place based on a recording of 4 voices asking for "MORE" and a set of headphones with a recording of all the sounds from the mouth of the people while eating providing to the audience an immersive experience trying to make them feel like the "prey," the woman with the food suit.
