Mariana Costa: The Chicken #2  

A performative experiment based on the latest notes on becoming a Chicken at a crossroad. 

Notes on becoming a Chicken at a crossroad: 

Dis-con-formation spells. INFLATE. Excessiveness.  SWALLOW. Overflowing water from the bottle. COVER. Cloaking spiritualities.  UNCOVER. Female’s voracious head.  STRETCH. Enchanted anthropophagis.  LICK. Trans-Landscapes of textures and mysteries. DRAG. Eating stories. PINCH. Ping pong farts. Sound unpredictability. CAMOUFLAGE. Languages of possession and magic. BITE. Intermediate objects. PEEL. Oozing shape. DISGUISE. Resilience. CROSS. Lingering. Kid’s Lunchtime. Tergiversation.  Uncomfortable fear and fun. Mercury. CUDDLE. Profane. RUB. Plastic organs-masks. SCATTER. Pleasure. SHAKE. Gods, demons, matters. TOUCH. Erotic nostalgia, air and ground. GROPE. Ghost dances. BRUSH. Dance floor. STICK. An incomplete poem. PEEL. Empty theaters. TRACE. Bathroom’s blonde Libations. BREAK. “Dobrar” the death. BEND. Not not landing.  PENETRATE. Building a sanctuary made for monsters.  Crosshumans.
