Extracción-Inserción : Wisdom-Juicio 2012

collaboration with Emilio Rojas

Video In, Video Out, Vancouver
Ex-Teresa Arte Actual, Mexico City

In a collaboration with Emilio Rojas, wisdom teeth (muelas del juicio, or "molars of judgment") are extracted while four text-based tattoos - "jucio" - "guilt", and "sabiduría" - "wisdom" - are "inserted" simultaneously on the artist's feet by a tattoo artist. The first half of the performance took place in Vancouver, and the other half in Mexico.
