on the stage of a theater, the artist is attached to a strong elastic rope connected to a “abseil chair” made of the same material. this rope is firmly attached to the ceiling structure so that it can sustain the artist in discontinuous times.
to materialize the daily clashes in the form of a vertical line, which detaches from the ceiling and touches the ground. exercises of trial and error, clash, resistance tests and elasticity before a restriction – the rope – which preexists to the action. limits, possibilities.
