PAY ME A VISIT
Monetary performance by The Montesinos Federation
Window installation at topic art space, curated by A. Marzullo and D. Bernardi, Geneva, 2021 During a few hours, Elena Montesinos has composed patterns on the floor made from 5 cent swiss coins, following the tile structure on the ground to generate a kind of labyrinth shape. The ritualized gesture was meditative, watched over by a piece of furniture evoking an oversized patriarchal hand reminiscent of a certain King-Kong… The public has been invited to sonorize the event from outside the window, using a Stylophone connected to a Suitcase-Blaster. The money mosaic stayed then on display 24/7 until the end of September 2021.
