Self-portrait: Action kit for a pendulum consists of a set of questions, possible actions and movement constellations aid by the use of different materials such as: milk, water, bee wax, cotton shits, newspaper cuts, family pictures, wood, chalk, city maps... During the performance I address a series of questions around the idea of identity while parallel performing actions that are dependent on the answers the pendulum gives. In the performance, every constellation is an attempt to reveal a malleable, random and sometimes awkward self-portrait that forms and connects relations between the elements involved. The self-portrait appears and disolves by the spectrum of options and mediums that at times make sense and at others contradict each other. The result is an intimate yet absurd performance since it is the pendulum the instrument through which the piece is assembled, revealing a vulnerability and randomness in its construction.
