Live Performance at Giardino Piazza 20 Settembre, Bologna, Italy
In occasion of Flash ART Fair 2005
Since 2001, Shahram Entekhabi has used cordon tape to create new, temporary territories in public space. He has used his performances to question our view of this kind of tape and pointed out how physical spaces are segregated and how certain groups of the population are prevented from going where they please. Throughout the years, he has conducted these performances, also known as ’Parasite Architectures’ or ‘Cautions’, many different places around the world. In this particular contribution, Entekhabi has mapped his performances in a map of the world where they are interconnected in a constellation of lines which in its own intricate form is reminiscent of his performances.
