What do we neglect to pay attention to, as we rush through our days?

event:
Bienal of Curitiba Performance Art Week curated by Fernando Ribeiro of p.ARTE
venue:
Passeio Público
location:
Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil
sponsor:
14th Bienal Internacional de Arte Contemporaneá de Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil
date:
November 2019

Project Notes:

This performance took place in Passeio Público, a park in the center of the city of Curitiba, Paraná, Brazil.  Crouching and sometimes crawling through the park, I invited the public to investigate all the other life that we overlook as we hurry through our own lives.  Using magnifying glasses, we could see a myriad of entities that live alongside us, who we don’t take the time to really see – other creatures, insects, trees, plants, lichen, earth and stone.  As we discovered them, we put a small flag at the location that displayed the title of the work.  It allowed others to find what we had seen: the beauty of the tiny, the minute and the microscopic world around us.  When we left the park there were flags throughout the area for others to find, marking the lives that we rarely take the time to notice.
