September 2020: Ejercicio De Ruido (Loud Exercise)

The artist calls on the pedestrians of Avenida José Manuel Infante to perform one simple action. They are asked to jump while holding onto the wall. With these short ‘warming up’ exercises, written on the exterior wall of ‘Die Ecke’, she questions how we, these vulnerable bodies, can practice sensory strategies on how to be heard. Taking inspiration from the Chilean protest- and women’s movement learning from their tactics in which a vital role is reserved for music and rhythmic gestures like jumping.
