LA BLANCA NOVIA
VIII festival de artes al aire libre, FAAL Guayaquil 2007

Una novia, con su traje blanco, va dibujando sobre el piso parejas de objetos: copas, camas, sillas, excusados, televisiones, mamaderas, bicicletas estáticas, ollas arroceras, alcancías y demás. La acción sucede al amanecer y al atardecer, en el elegante malecón del Río Guayas. La mujer es una figura silenciosa, absorta en su tarea, como si estuviese dentro de una campana de cristal.
La gente se acerca respetuosamente. Me atrae la reverencia y acogida que este personaje provoca, como si fuese una flor blanca, libre de cualquier pecado o mal pensamiento.

THE BRIDE
VIII edition of outdoor art festival, FAAL Guayaquil 2007

A bride, with her white dress, starts to draw on the floor. She is drawing pairs of objects: wineglasses, beds, chairs, toilettes, televisions, diapers, stationary bicycles, pots, piggy banks and so on and so forth. This ritual takes place during sunrise and sunset, for approximately an hour at a time. The woman draws quietly and concentrated, as if she were under a glass bell.
People approach her respectfully and quietly. I love the reverence and warmth this character emanates: as if she were a perfect white flower, free of any sin or malicious thought.
