LOS GLOBOS ARTIVISTAS


2017 - ongoing

translated into The Artivist Balloons (neologism that combines the words Art + Activism)


Birthdays, anniversaries, recurrential celebrations or reaching-a-particular-age parties are frivolous, highly conventional occasions, yet in these unsuspected events - bordering on conformity, lays the highest potential of a community spirit, what in Arabic is called Asabiyyah [عصبية (togertheness)] a sort of collective sentimental extension to in which individual consciences participate but vibrate in unison to reach a shared atmosphere of lightness and presence.

Los Globos Artivistas makes use of the language of the celebration, the temporary suspension of everyday life that the party imposes, the micro glitch of habits,
to instill the spirit that I hope we will be able to fish out, re-evaluate, to apply it in other aspects of our
lives.

Los Globos Artivistas aims to disrupt public spaces,
re-invent new forms of protesting,
inspire a sense of curiosity, unhinge conventions
through the language of celebration and party merged with a political punch.
It’s a performative project in constant movement,
the installations are oftenly hand carried by groups of people during major social events in town
like demonstrations and cultural public venues.
