During my stay in Cordoba, after discovering that the building I was living in, was a Dating House.
I investigate 2 concepts: forbidden and violence. This artwork was inspired from the encounter I had with the old “Madame” of the brothel. The conversation’s topic was the space as private-public use.


On 6 December 2015 I decided to write a few sentences in the Column of Free Expression. This is one of the many add posts in Cordoba where people can freely afflict any advertisement they want. In reality, only the city hall can choose which adds will stay there.
This action, took place for 8am to 2pm. After two days, glue and political poster was on the column.
The gesture is an invitation to defend our freedom.
This artwork was inspired from the encounter I had with the old “Madame” of the brothel.
The conversation’s topic was the space as private-public use.


On the 12th of December the same text that was on the Free Expression Column is continued on guest skin for the event I never saw him again.
The performance was a meeting generation where word became physical experience.
Each word was tattoo on each person.
the text for the cityhall and the people was:

YO SOLO LLEVABA MI ABRIGO Y ROPA INTERIOR Y EN EL MERCADO TODOS ME COMIAN COMO PULGAS MI AMANTE ES FABRICANTE DE ORO

I dress in my fur and my underwear I go to the market everyone eat me like fleas my lover is gold producer

the text for the inside of the building was:

ONCE I HAD AN ITALIAN LOVER MARCO. HE ASKED ME TO PICK HIM UP FROM THE TRAIN STATION IN FLORENCE I WENT THERE. I WAITED FOR HIM. I ONLY DRESSED IN MY FUR AND MY UNDERWEAR WE WENT INTO A BAR TO EAT SOMETHING I SHOWED HIM AND THEN I NEVER SAW HIM AGAIN.
