La Guerra de Acqua, 2011/12, performance Carrying 80lbs of water from Lake Trasimeno to Cortona- 12km.
The ideas was sparked from the a conversation with several locals who stated that the lake at the bottom of the mountain was used only by barbarians for swimming- that Italians don't engage in such ways. Also since my last visit Italians had heavy switched to using plastic bottles for drinking water. How do you bring ideas of one's surroundings to those who live within it? How do we bring attention to our disconnect with the environment elements that sustain us. For me labor, performance --friction is the answer.
