Tucumán, Buenos Aires
arteBA fair

Daniel is a photo-performance that takes the name of the lamb that was the protagonist in the action (my pet at that time). From a formal relationship between two species: hair and color, I designed an action with my lamb for three places I lived in at that time: Tucumán (my hometown), Buenos Aires (my city of residence) and the art world (in this case an art fair). Remembering the dead hare of Joseph Beuys, I traveled through my worlds known until that moment, moving from the periphery to the center, reviewing above all the Christian metaphors of the lamb, the sheepfold, fidelity, belonging and everything opposite to it.
