By Carissa Carman (artist, Canada, USA)
For this project, the artist has created a performance as a means to initiate contact within habitants of San Agustín. She will walk backward, anticipating reactions such as surprise and laughter that will, in turn, generate questions and conversation. Carman will draw out stories about people’s relationship to public and domestic space which she will translate into drawings to be exhibited at MAC/SAN Building. In doing so, she makes visiblethe reality of housing and life in the neighbourhood, as well as representing the imaginary of San Agustínians in this regard.
