How does it feel to be a fiction? Bogotá Virus (October 19-November 25, 2017)

Viral text, digital performance, sculptural installation


The second iteration, How does it feel to be a fiction? Bogotá Virus (October 19-November 25, 2017), was part of the exhibition No Como Cuenta curated by de cabeza (Catalina Acosta-Carrizosa and Jerónimo Duarte-Riascos) at la Universidad de los Andes.  For this iteration, the text considered the fictions central to desire—the fact that love is something you don't have but want to give to someone else who doesn't want it. It included a sculptural installtion in addition to the viral text and digitial performance.  


The sculptural installtion consited of a reading of a passage from the viral text, documentation from the first iteration of the work (a continuous screengrab of email bouncebacks from the first iteration printed on 13oz vinyl, 17"x379"), as well as an interactive/participatory computer archive to which viewers were invited to contribute).
