Presented as part of Pacific Standard Time Festival: Live Art LA/LA
Mercedes Azpilicueta’s performance La Facultad introduces multiple narratives as a body moving in the space activates different voices, sound clips, and projected images. The script features two characters: Yuko, a survivor of the U.S. attack on Hiroshima in 1945; and Justine, the main fictional character of the book Justine or The Misfortunes of Virtue (1787) by the Marquis de Sade. The two voices are selected from The Words of Others (1967), a literary collage by Argentine artist León Ferrari. Other sources used in the work include poetry of Chicana artist Gloria Anzaldúa, the illustrations of Justine by Czech transgender artist Toyen (aka Marie Čermínová), and gestures from singer Mina Mazzini.
