Hector Canonge: LUSTrapies

Hector Canonge: LUSTrapies Hector Canonge


Carrying a typical shoe-shining-box used by 'lustrabotas" -children that work shining shoes in many urban centers in Latin America- I "clean" the shoes of strangers inside SESC -Vila Mariana. In return, participants must tell me what they LUST or most desire in their lives,

He explores and treats issues related to construction of identity, gender roles, and the politics of migration. He organizes the performance art festival ITINERANT .
