Well-formed breasts…coincidence? (es)

This video performance makes reference to the power of the symbols (archetypes), that at the same time are shapes and therefore, numbers. These symbols, as well explained C.G. Jung, have dominated our life since the beginning because they are part of our collective unconscious and have determined what is beautiful and good and what is ugly and bad. Thus, the religions and governments have used them throughout the history in order to create resounding effects that manipulate the society. It means that strong or weird physical experiences can turn into aesthetic and pleasant experiences (images) just because they follow powerful and inherited patterns and symbols. The artist is also interested in producing a difference in a space the spectators would already be familiar with and the idea that a performance could use a space out of context bringing out all its theatrical potential.
