Rocha & Poise: Las Catrinas

Rocha & Poise: Las Catrinas Alexei Taylor

Las Catrinas

Like sound and light, voice has a non-material and sculptural dimension. Its presence in space and time combines volume and propagation. In this performance installation, people standing still packed in black garbage bags, inside barrels, speaking their names non-stop, their birth dates and future death dates, proclaiming their own death.


Rocha & Polse is a duo made up of visual artists Mariana Rocha and Fernanda Branco Polse. Their collaborative work is interdisciplinary, site and context responsive spanning from performance art, to sound, photography, video and installation. They research sound, movement, voice, weight and body. They live and work in Brazil.
