First Aid manuals inspire the work by Brazilian artist Alexandre da Cunha. The performance deals with the fragility of the body. A collaborator is invited to repeat a sequence of movements that hark back to treatment and intervention procedures, such as massages, bandaging and autopsy. The artist is considered a follower of the relational art proposed by Brazilian artist Lygia Clark. The work was commissioned by Associação Cultural Videobrasil.
The performance was reissued by the artist in 2013, during the 18th Festival. Find out more about the reissue in our collection
