VOICES OF SILENCE
Two women, two voices, two opposite parts of the same territory. The territory of art. The balance between the art system and the silence of the studio is the balance of the two faces of the same coin. The absolute of creation and the economic system in mirror. This performance will be an exchange between Marta Gnyp, and Myriam Mechita, to understand how art is a fragile utopia of the absolute.
