redemption
Durational performance and exhibition
2016 - ongoing


Redemption is the transformational journey undergone by a piece of two grams of hashish since the moment I moved to Amsterdam, in August 2016.

The artefact is successively smuggled inside a woman's vagina from the Netherlands into other European countries and back.

While the specimen’s basic composition remains the same, its form gradually and irreversibly mutates by inhabiting a human body and its official status and economical value is altered erratically by the legal systems in place in each particular situation.

In collaboration with Pablo Sacristán
