Profoundly honored to be included in this moving Art Practical article by Irina Contreras about Pacific Standard Time and REDCAT – Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater’s PST: LA/LA performance festival in connection to what is happening at a local, national, and global scale. Featuring artists Aisec Domingo Lunez, Rafa Esparza, Sebastian Hernandez, Artemisa Marie Dolores Clark and myself! Irina focuses on some of the festival’s moments that invoked recline or respite. From the article:
(Cesia Domínguez) López presented a scene that was at once an altar and a performance in which she lay adorned in gold paint and surrounded by plants. Over the course of four hours, she shifted locations four times in an effort to slow time. López’s performance was spent connecting and building intentionality with the endangered native plants she was surrounded with. The process, while insular, was made public. Edgar Fabián Frías also employed a purposeful non-action during their piece at Cuerpos Unidos, in which they refused to allow themselves to seek any rational or logical meaning. In examining the participation of several of the performers from PST: LA/LA, I look to work that shares an interest in the physicality of the pause, recline, or moment of respite. These moments across the performances, although quite varied, provided information about how contemporary Latinx artists are considering and acting alongside the current political moment.
