It was presented as related to the workshop “Environment, object and body” at the Festival Internacional of Performance Ebent ’03, at the Cotxeres Borrell of Barcelona, November 2003.
Duration: 30 min.
Invisible barriers: The deaf community is a culturally and linguistically seggretgated community, isolated by invisible barriers. My job as a Sign Language interpreter tries to minimize this seggregation. I asked a deaf person to talk about his artistic and cultural interests. I asked for him to write a text addressed to the hearing community about the social situation, culture and values of the deaf comunity, its situation of marginalization with regard to the hearing artistic world, and I transferred his text to a 15 m long paper roll. I used in a simplified way the role of Interpreter by lending my mouth for the transmission of his words. I pulled the roll out of my mouth as I fixed it on the wall under the row of works of art hanging int the art space called “Les Cotxeres Borrell”.
