Rocio Boliver’s practice is a sharp and focused critique of the many repressive ideologies that burden the lives of women. “In this pasteurized society, I prefer to cause disgust, hatred, rejection, confusion, weariness, anxiety, hostility, fear ... better than to further promote the mental aseptic."
From 1992 to present, Boliver, a performance artist from Mexico, has made art all over the world.
"I devote myself to transgress limits. I dig into human behavior. I’m a human voracious hunter, consumer and provocateur. I show the horrors of hidden lies. I practice a constant situationism, disrupting daily routine. I take on sex topics because the world still shivers to them. Sex is good bait for my hunt.
I break the conventional woman scheme so this performance Beauty by Design aims to demystify 'the horror of old age', inventing my own deranged aesthetic and moral solutions for the 'problem of age'. I hope my mockery of this absurd contemporary reality exposes a broken society based on looks and how 'old age' became synonymous with insult.” - Rocio Boliver
Suitable for 16+
