A film stills story
The series of film stills is an attempt to dissolve art and life into one. Through long and obsessive series of performances I developed a strong emotional connection to a product, to Lindsay the Love doll. I inflated Lindsay during one year and took her with me everywhere I went. From the first day I took care of her: we were travelling together and living together. My life became her life and through her presence, I could document our experiences and encounters. The journey we took was a search for home: the factory where Lindsay was produced is in China. We travelled together from Buenos Aires to Chile, and then to Shanghai on board of a containership. From there we searched for factories and discovered Chinese culture. After a last stop in Japan and Switzerland, the performance came to its end, exactly one year after it began. A finite time frame in order to keep an obsession under control.
Lindsay provoked emotions – offenses, inappropriateness, jealousy but also kindness and happiness. Love is an egoistic emotion – by giving her my love she became love to me, she became a projection and bearer of emotions. She travelled, she danced, she posed, she hugged, she kissed. She never had her own emotions but she gave people the chance to express theirs.
