Performance

Cant tel.lúric als esperits de la muntanya

Vallvidrera tunnel. Barcelona

 

 

Those were the times in 1990, when they were drilling through the bowels of the Tibidabo mountain to cross it in what would later become the Vallvidrera Tunnel.

 

Anyway, while the two faces were being drilled in order to meet in the middle, just when there were about fifty meters to go, I was asked to do a performance in that very place.

 

Of course I was delighted to accept: the proposal was in line with my own and the mountain's situation. It was necessary to make, I told myself, a song of atonement to the spirit of the Tibidabo mountain and at least to show it that one was aware of the intrusion from the telluric point of view.  That's how dmearing my body with mud, grey blood of the mountain I transformed the pain she felt into a human cry.

 

 This was  THE TELLURIC SONG TO THE SPIRITS OF THE MOUNTAIN.

 

Due to the conditions at the time, it was only accessible by special vehicles. For security reasons, access was restricted to the media only in order to document and circulate the event.

The telluric shaman had been born from the earth and had celebrated propitiatory rituals in great constructions, hence these performances were named INDUSTRIAL SHAMANISM.

 

 

 

 

Més ennlà de la seducció,

el cor i la veu de l'oficiant

s'entregaran com a ofrena,

en transmissió primordial,

a les energies centrals que regeixen

el destí de la nostra particularitat

 

La profunditat de la nostra memòria, comprèn

una expansió igual

a la llunyania de la nostra mirada,

a així gaudirem millor del nostre quotidià

sense separar-nos del coneixement

 

La nostra actitud

no confondrà les formes del ser,

viurem així un nou avanç

de civilització,

impregnant-nos

d'infinites crisàlides

de les que naixeran  nous punts

de llum i de raó

 

El poliedre de la reflexió alliberarà

infinits somriures,

una nova irradiació  humana

de despreniment i amor
