Wall Street and Adjacent Areas
Eleonora Fabião experimental collective performance, comprised of an intergenerational group of participants ranging in age from their 20s to 60s, stages actions, manipulating twelve-foot bamboo rods and color fields differently altered each day to explore the relation between geometry, political potential, and abstraction through radically precarious assemblages. The performances are “urban acupuncture”, meditations on verticality, possibility, instability, and vulnerability in capitalist societies, openly displaying the tensions between profit and gratuity, efficiency and experimentation, normative meaning and meaningful vitality, and capital orientation and political imagination.
