new, outward-looking and often risky proposals of what a Spanish-language Caribbean literature might constitute. Possibilities relating

to concerns with otherness, orality, memory and marooning abound'. Jèssica Pujol - ALBA

Translation into English of León Félix Batista's 'Bone Music' poem and reading at the Alba Magazine Launch together with

Omar García Obregón, Annie McDermott, Jeff Hilson, Sara Torres, RTA Parker, Sarah Kelly, Jèssica Pujol.

The film explores the presence and absence of the body in relation to contemporary film and popular media cultures. The body is subjected to a criminal investigation in which the global concerns of the economy are placed on the individual. The relation between narrative, text and visual imagery is revealed through a portrait of contemporary suburban lifestyle. The global crisis acts as the 'perfect crime' - everyone is guilty. The film examines how complicit the individual is in the global perfect crime, a crime in which we are all suspects searching for a witness, an other. The film was made through a site-specific collaborative process in which the three artists erase the idea of the author to create a fictional subjectivityboth in writing and film.

02.06.12 - 02.10.12 Staircase descending a Nude. The Lookout Gallery, Aldeburgh Art 2012.

The work explores Duchamp's 'Nude descending a staircase' a 100 years after its conception. It embodies the staircase on a nude, it transforms Duchamp's image into a living participative sculpture.

The participative installation investigates the movement of people filmed descending the Aldeburgh Beach Lookout staircase. Passers-by were invited to be active subjects in the filming of the project. A high definition video image is created overlapping 30 film layers to reflect on ideas of time and movement. The film is then projected inside the Lookout Gallery. The public are encouraged to sing a harmonic sound that is amplified in the space to be part of a ritual that makes them the art work as a moving bodily canvas for the projection.

The ideas of science and technology that informed Duchamp's original analogue painting concept are explored through a digital contemporary form (video projection). The clothed movement of people descending a staircase is projected on a 'Nude torso'.

Duchamp's painting in 1912 explored the mechanics of movement and its reframing in painting.

'... we have two parallel movements which correspond to one another.' Duchamp.

In our installation we deform the staircase through the bodily projection. We take the subject of Duchamp's painting, the Nude and use it as a living canvas. Abstracted from the figure in Duchamp's painting, the figure returns with a real presence. Projection and breath together create a living presence for the descent of the staircase.

The Public become the work in the Installation. They are transformed into a skin canvas for the descent of the staircase. Their bodies take the work from the outside to the inside of the body. The figures descending the staircase appear to enter the navel of the person being projected on. The staircase descends the naked chest. The work becomes a mirror, it inverses Duchamp's idea.

29.04.11 L'after économie (video 16' & installation). Plankton Bar #40 Bondgenotenstraat 54 rue des Allies, 1190 Brussels - group show

Premiere of our new film made during the two month Bains Connective residency. The work process was called 'locating the mouth of the collective body' investigating ideas of time, community as a 'body' and the mouth as a point of entry into the community. We developed these ideas working with different age groups, exploring language/non-language possibilities, the mouth and its tracing in alginate, plaster and sound. This project was filmed in the Berlioz Senoirs Club, Vorst, and in Ixelles, Brussels. Made in collaboration with Gines Olivares. Thanks to Bains Connective, The Berlioz Seniors Club, school children ('les bad boys'), the community of Vorst and the Andwandter Family.

10.03.11 Sarma Salon #2: Time is on my side. Les Bains Connective (Bondgenotenstraat 54 rue des AlliÈs, 1190 Brussels)

How do artists work today? How do they speak about their method? How can one make a start with documenting, discussing and sharing the hybrid and heterogeneous practices that underpin the performing arts today? How can the informal and embodied discourses, as well as the implicit knowledge they carry, find a wider recognition and accessibility? A series of monthly salons, organized by Sarma in different locations in Brussels, create a live research environment for makers and researchers to address issues of new artistic practices and discourses.

Amongst the other artists presentations we showed a sound work in progress - 'time' by Adrian Fisher & Luna Montenegro. Invited artists of the Salon: Kobe Matthys, Marthe Van Dessel, Sarah Vanhee, Wendy van Wynsberghe. Concept: Lilia Mestre, Jeroen Peeters, Kristien Van den Brande. Production: Sarma. Coproduction: Bains Connective. With the support of WorkSpaceBrussels and Vlaamse Gemeenschapscommissie

'monuments to memory games' is an exhibition that examines ideas of 'play' in relation to memory and history through installation, video and live performance. The process of play is central to mmmmm's work. Through play they are engaged with issues of what is performance? What is the spectacle in performance? What evokes memory? How can histories be reconstructed in the documentation of performance. How through engaging in play can the experience of memory and history be made more risky, more present.

04.06.10 - 06.09.10 La possibilité de révolution - solo exhibition

La Cité des Insectes - Chaud 87120 NEDDE, Limoges, France.

Site-specific installation exploring the possibility of revolution.
The artists work under a 'Tree of Liberty' planted around 1789 as a symbol of the French Revolution, making a one to one encounter with the museum visitors and workers. They take a mould of a person's finger, a trace of an intimate moment with a stranger.

They use the former communal Village bread oven as an exhibition space, installing the plaster casts of people's fingers; organising them in clear structures, organic piles, groups and individual units.

The installation reflects on and proposes a challenge to the way in which museums are structured and present objects. There are three traditional museum display cabinets placed in the space, the plaster fingers are inside and outside of them; in the former oven, in a bird's nest in the stone wall. The installation contains different situations of the plaster cast fingers using some of the technical equipment of science and museums such as a light box, a slide carousel, an inspection lens.

12.07.09 - 2.08.09 Residency in Rifrazioni Festival, Anzio, Italy

'The Festival, known as Rifrazioni, was born in 2006 as an international Summer Festival of Performance, Visual Arts and Music occurring every year in the historically relevant sites of Anzio and Nettuno. Both the towns overlook the sea of the southern coast of Lazio, 50 Km south of Rome.

Rifrazioni can be regarded as a contemporary art project, which recuperates the local archaeological heritage, re-defining its identity.
The Festival aims to diversify the cultural supply of the territory relying on interdisciplinarity and contamination between artistic languages and cultures; it endeavours to establish a free zone for the merging of disciplines, genres and codes.

Rifrazioni is a SITE-SPECIFIC Festival.
The works of art presented within the Festival are strongly informed by the territory that inspires and moulds them with its historical and socio-cultural specificity. Therefore Rifrazioni shifts into the territory elaborating and re-interpreting the local identity through the sight of the invited artists.' (Rifrazioni 09).

London Art Fair, Art Projects Space, with '3D Galleria' (Piazzale Candiani 31, Venice, Italy) Jan.14th to 18th, 2009. Business Design Centre, London N1.

Aurora was inspired by the illuminated 15th centuary alchemical manuscript: 'Aurora Consurgens'. A man attempts to suck milk from a woman's breast. There is no milk. The possibility of feeding, of nourishment is stopped. The continuity of life becomes a still point, a still life. It represents the end of capitalism, the end of the flows of money (liquidity). The man is left sucking, attempting to continue the actions that brought the flow of capital, but the breasts are empty. The action remains as a ritual, a meditation on what is missing. We also showed a new framed photographic work made in collaboration with photographer Ignacio Acosta.

Videoplay 08, Centro Cultural Oi Futuro, Río de Janeiro, BRASIL

In a corner of a room an elephant turns on a metaphorical 'wheel of consumption'. A man eats a battered fish (commonly found all over the UK in 'fish and chip' shops). A woman wearing a mask  made out of newspaper and potato chips appears to scream silently.

Kaisiya is inspired by Anne Chapman’s interviews with Lola Kiepja, the last surviving female shaman of the Selk'nam people in Tierra del Fuego.  In the original ritual the shaman would chant for three or four days to bring food in the form of a dead whale to the beach.  This allowed the main ritual of The Hain to commence. Produced in collaboration with Gines Olivares and Felipe Luck.

23.09.07 'a brief history of elephant' (20mins)

Pullens Centre, Elephant and Castle, London.

The name 'Elephant and Castle' probably derives from the emblem on the Cutlers' Company, a guild founded in the 13th century to represent workers who made knives, scissors and surgical instruments. The handles of these instruments often used Indian elephant ivory, hence the 'Elephant' image. The 'Castle' represents the 'howdah' a seat placed on the back of the elephant traditionally used by the hunters.

In 1641, a constant stream of horse-drawn vehicles led to a blacksmith, John Flaxman, setting up a forge on an island site between the main roads. Around 1760, the metal workers premises became an 'inn' and was renamed the 'Elephant and Castle.'

14.08.04  Art of War (16mins)

Rockhouse Gallery, Isle of Sheppey, UK. "Insula Ovinium" - Art & Performance event organized by Nicole Mollett

Review by David Medalla, Performance artist.

mmmmm (consisting of Chilean poet Luna Montenegro and English artist Adrian Fisher) performed a dramatic piece entitled "Art of War" on the grass-grown ampitheatre in front of the Rockhouse a couple of metres from the sea. Adrian, dressed in the military uniform of a tin-pot dictator, heavily laden with spurious medals, strutted in exaggerated goose-steps, with one hand up raised in the Heil Hitler salute, around the statuesque figure of Luna wrapped entirely, at the start of the performance, in a silken chatreuse-red cloth. Gradually Adrian (the Dictator) unravelled the cloth, on which he laid supine facing the figure of Luna dressed in a bright green see-through netting dress, surmounted by a green structure on her head. Luna, like a goddess of the jungle, gradually advanced towards the figure of the dictator, and (to the surprise of the spectators who watched the performance in silence) Luna pissed on the chest of the supine Dictator. "I grew up in Chile at the time of the dictator Pinochet," said Luna Montenegro afterwards, "and I will piss any time on any dictator anywhere".
