Originally presented during the 13th Festival (2001), Coverman signaled the event’s gradual embracing of the visual arts and transdisciplinarity. Alexandre da Cunha’s piece was the first Festival performance to take place in the actual exhibition space; it is reminiscent of Lygia Clark’s universe, with its exploration of the body’s vulnerability, the notion of healing, and a vast repertoire of first-aid gestures. Here, the artist rereads the performance in the light of time that has passed, with multiple protagonists. The work was commissioned by Associação Cultural Videobrasil.
