Harassment towards Bohemia and Landscape Painting
The daily life of a teenage artist in instagram


The performance consists of showing a teenager work with pretensions to be an artist, he not only draws as he sculpts the clay. The artist suffers from an irrational fear of woods, forests and trees, which may be the result of some traumatic experience, some beating with a piece of wood, or having been attacked in a forest in childhood. This young artist is completely obsessed with natural landscapes or urban landscapes that have some natural elements, developed an acute dendrophobia but also an inverted Stendhal Syndrome, he suffers from nausea and cold sweat in a compulsive way whenever he comes across something that has to do with art. The young artist is putting his art on instagram. As a dark side, he self-mutilates himself. This performance seems to be related to an extremely rare and melancholic allergic movement, that is at the beginning an intentional movement that tries to suggest to other artists the same path. Harassment towards Bohémia reports in this case, to the fact that the young person feels attacked by landscape painting, the youngster wonder how to ban landscape painting. What laws could be used to nullify the possibility of humans contemplate and paint landscape, segments of nature, but also the prohibition of painting the urban landscape. In this sense, apart from small cuts in the skin, the young artist will draw landscapes and will sculp them in clay, to immediately destroy them and show his distaste for this type of drawing, painting and sculpture.

HUNGER

the being is an empty fiction

I find myself trans-aparent.
Trans-aparent, something manifests through me, taking shape, modeling, creating.
(In) a time leaking, melted with the space of my disquiet, of this ravenous hunger.
So, what I transpire is and is not what I project, perhaps things that come out of other things, sort of weirdness alive, autonomous.
Maybe I´m the one on the other and vice-versa, always suggesting, self feeding. 
Satisfying one self repeatedly in a acumulation of beings, such as an overhead material transparency.
I do trans-aparent.

(Bu claims that all can be the opposite of what was said)
