In 1991, when I was five years old, my father left the army and with our family we moved from the countryside to Buenos Aires. Leaving behind my family`s short but deep experience towards military we begun a new life experience.
In this performance, I am wearing the last suit my father used as a member of the Armada República Argentina, retired as a Frigate Lieutenant.
I find important to establish that in Argentina´s history the image of a militar stepping on a balance is a crucial symbol. I believe this piece should not be mislead to a difficult understanding. It is a simple representation: a militar on a balance.
Is it about justice? About taking a role on power? Is it about an important decision?
