FADO is pleased to co-present a new durational performance work by Rosa Mesa during the aluCine Toronto Latin Film & Media Arts Festival.
Tired of Counting by Rosa Mesa
Everything is reduced to money, economy and numbers, so it is life. The repetition, the emptiness invades our understanding of a world that tries to give economical value to everything on it. Since childhood I have a conflict with numbers, they bore me, the abstraction of them moves me away from the real, from what I consider real, from emotions, people, nature, life... In an economical world, everything is tiresome, jobs are transformed in a parody, trapped in this realm man can only count.
