Clara Macías Carcedo (Mexico) is a performance artist, scenographer, and actor. She explores gender around the image and the representation of women with a transformative purpose, as seen in the scenic performance Noir. She has presented her performative films at the Museo ExTeresa Arte Actual and ITINERANT Performance Art Festival NYC, among others.
Performance based on the feminine auto-erotism as a moral prohibition in hegemonically patriarchal societies. The actions symbolize a musical narcosis in which watermelon juice conceals a cold and subdued woman’s loneliness and inability to communicate, as well as her ability to achieve climax, a light and contradictory trembling.
A performance that questions the power dynamics of relationships based on servility and domination, which are confused with love. Can love be purchased? How much does it cost? Petra F. is tied to another body, both bodies attached by their feet. She wanders through the square, dragging a body resembling her own shadow, while she begs passersby for love.
