Cosmofitness (2020). Performance fotográfica

(English version below)

ES:

A menudo, los trajes que realiza para sus performances han sido considerados trajes espaciales con los que realizar actividades cotidianas. El traje de Cosmofitness fue originalmente pensado para realizar deporte en el espacio. Así, la artista, realizaba acciones donde montaba en bicicleta durante horas, o practicaba aerobic con uno de estos trajes. Posteriormente, coincidiendo con una exposición virtual organizada por Loose art, estos trajes fueron introducidos en paisajes degradados y suburbanos. Los performers posaban en lugares a los que no se les da mucho valor cultural, como si fueran turistas espaciales, criticando así el turismo de postureo, donde es más importante la fotografía que se realiza que el lugar que se visita.

Often times, the costumes that she makes for her performances have been considered spacesuits in which to carry out everyday activities. The Cosmofitness suit was originally intended for sports in space. Thus, the artist performed actions where she rode a bicycle for hours, or practiced aerobics with one of these outfits. Later, coinciding with a virtual exhibition organized by Loose art, these costumes were introduced in degraded and suburban landscapes. The performers posed in places that are not given much cultural value, as if they were space tourists, thus criticizing posture tourism, where the photography that is taken is more important than the place that is visited.
