Performance “Sobre o peso nos meus ombros”


The performance is designed as a performative action in which the artist attaches to her hair, separated into strands, little weights, known as chumbinhos. These weights are used in fishing and are made of lead, since it possesses considerable weight in relation to its volume when compared to other metals. The chumbinhos are attached along the entire length of the strands of the artist’s hair. The weights are attached using rubber bands already been attached to the lead weights. In tests, the artist has used as much as 4 kilos of lead weights, seeking to explore the limits that her body imposes.
