performing performer perform form

A research project based on an experimental approach entitled “An impossible wardrobe for the
invisible”, this experimental approach signifies here that all the experimental actions taking place
in this project are actions where the outcome is not foreseen. Meaning that each piece is unique
and can’t be repeated. Lara Torres present’s the recordings/documentation of seven performances
in a video screening showing the following titles:
1. 1.Woman in the water
2. Two man hug
3. Man sinking to the floor
4. The older man sitting
5. Young couple
6. Women crossing the water
7. Self portrait
These videos are based in the creation of temporary clothes that are produced with the aim of
being destroyed. They refer to the lost of the object and the documentation of this loss. The action
of effacing the clothes leaves a trace (the seams) translating a strong relation with memory and
forgetfulness.
