"Sangría" is an inedit performance where the artist, Érika Ordosgoitti, creates a live image through the extraction of her blood.
"Freedom is my commitment to life. It is the most important value that moves me. I walk towards freedom knowing that absolute value does not exist and will never be achieved. My actions are free, it is only through them that I can achieve my own freedom. Freedom does not exist, there are only free actions from people that can eventually become free.
There is an instant of absolute freedom. This is the artistic event: the performance. That microsecond and then the delicate consequences that erupt from reality. A simple gesture, small, yet doubtful, can transform everything. Reality can be delicate and terrible at the same time."
Erika Ordosgoitti (1980) lives and works between Caracas and Bogota. She has a degree in Fine Arts Mixed Media Mention from Armando Reveron Higher Education School of Fine Arts in Caracas (IUESAPAR).
