Temporary Title, 2015 is an exhibition where visitors enter and leave at will. That situation is made with performers forming and deforming groups or assemblies while composing a landscape in perpetual transformation. The performer’s actions and presences oscillate between  recognizable and unrecognizable appearances which characteristics could be sculptural, animal, vegetal, mechanical .... and, sometimes, they approach the public to engage in conversations.

Taking up some of the materials developed for low pieces this work questions the dividing lines between human / inhuman, object / subject, transformation / transition / modification. At first sight, it can appear as something external to contemplate, but, the duration of the visit make it become a landscape in which we find ourselves, a situation to live, a space where our perception can be faster than the actions, otherwise says, a situation where maybe, time can wait.
