pazzanese-luche

LU-CHE is an art project developed by Giancarlo Pazzanese that consists in a performance and city interventions arround the so called 'Latinoamerican utopias'. Several images are printed on the ground with powder chalk and cardboard stencils arround the area of each exhibition and a live action performance completes each action when the artist plays a hopscotch game over a cross like court containing all the images that are repeatedly destroyed each time as the game takes place.

Theses interventions are done usually the morning or evening previous to each performance. The complete action lasts arround 15 min and is staged as a short school break, the dress was a hybrid cross between factory worker and school boy with militar hat and backpack.

WHY?
LU-CHE
was created for a show called HOMEMADE which ehxibited artists that have a special way of relating to chilean politics, tradition, modern cinema, public TV, object and video installations from a "do it yourself" attitude towards art production. The concepts of construction-destruction and the design of the exhibition itself, conformed by performances and site specific montages were the origin of these series of performances.
