Racial discrimination, particularly toward the black body, is the core theme of this performance piece. Drawing on elements intrinsically associated with the African-Brazilian—samba, carnival, and eroticism—and mixed with references to the white patria, the artist creates images that speak of racism, transgression as a form of resistance, and the importance of the body in identity formation. Through the power of the performance, and with a dose of irony and mockery, the aim is to give the object-body back its stolen subject, with all its feelings, beliefs, and singularities.
