Tales Frey, Passage. Performance art realized in Guimaraes, Portugal. June 2016. Photos by Hilda de Paulo
Crossed in a double-sided mirror during my birthday rite of passage, my body is presented in a durable transition situation to occupy a single opening in the object used in this action.
On the one side, there is the image of my body to plunge into his own reflection, on the other, my body emerging. Equidistant, my matter and the reflection have the mirror as a link, as a zero point, which I surpass as a real and illusory form for scoring the desire of immersing a diametrically anachronous time established with respect to the logic.
This action effected exactly on the date when I complete 34 years old – 20 June 2016 – confirms, once again, my commitment in 2013 to turn my birthdays in performance art events to the rest of my life, creating a new action each year. All creations are repeated in order to make the rite of passage in an artistic/aesthetic ritual.
Parallel to this action, the records of all performances art about this series will be displayed together all process documentation of creative process, which can be showed as independents masterpieces.
