Tales Frey, Triumph. Performance realizada na cidade do Rio de Janeiro, Brasil. Junho de 2019. Fotografia de Mãe Paulo


This performance art consists of two men dressed as boxers performing fighting moves, but they use a unique pair of special gloves that connects their bodies, making opponents into allies, turning a fight into affection. The idea of ​​triumph is not that there is a slight advantage over the other, but that harmony is established, where complements replace hostilities.

This work is part of the series “Memento Mori”.
