Chiasmus
Performance at Vilnius Art Fair (Lithuania) 2017. 
I was laying inside the cross 6 hours per day during 3 days, motionless, with only the hands and feet visible, accessible to the audience.
Chiasmus, pronounced Kiasmus, is a term from the Greek that means “crossing”. That is a figure of speech in which two or more clauses are related to each other through a reversal of structures in order to make a larger point.

Exposed
Performance, Museum of Modern Art (Santo Domingo), 2013.

Before the audience's arrival, I enter through the top of two separate boxes, one holding my head and the other my body. As I lie down my assistant closes the lids, leaving only my neck visible and accessible to the audience.

The Pawn
Performance, FIAC Paris 2016.
 
As a live sculpture, I was walking at the Fiac and standing in front of the others artist's work presented at the Fiac to create a visual dialogue between those pieces and the Pawn, while wearing a wool knitted armor that

The knight and The Shinning Armor
Performance (Paris) 2016.
It was a (real) date. I met this man in a night club. Two days after, he invited me to have lunch in a Parisian restaurant. I arrived wearing my wool knitted armor. He didn't expect it, and he had to feed me during that time.

Circle
Performance, Museum of Modern Art (Santo Domingo), 2013.
Part of the solo show "Emergent Conscience".
I entered in a wool knitted tower from the bottom. Once inside, I undressed completely; I sat on a chair and took the last thread of the tower from its base to start knitting a suit that I would wear in order to get out of that space. As the costume took shape, the bottom of the tower began falling apart and slowly revealed my legs. After several hours of knitting, I dressed myself up with the knitted costume and came out from the bottom of the cylinder.

Traînée
Performance (Paris) 2017Curated by Sarah Mercadante, Cité des Arts Internationale, Paris.
On the wall, a trail of my own blood (taken from my menstrual cup), on Arche paper, was trying to retrace the origin of the feeling of impurity, questioning the concept of purity that often refers to the woman.
I remained laying down, tied to a bed, motionless for 4 hours, a red rose between the legs.
Ablution
Performance, Festival INDEX (Miami-Puerto Rico-Santo Domingo) 2014.
I walked naked covered with a white transparent veil stained with my own blood from the belly to the ground in order to penetrate the clear water of a toddler's pool and clean myself.

The enemy behind the wall
Interactive installation, part of the solo show "Emergent Conscience", Museum of Modern Art of Santo Domingo, 2013.

The enemy behind the wall is composed of two identical and connected cylindrical rooms. Each cabin was equipped with a screen and a camera, filming and projecting simultaneously people's images in the opposite capsule in an infinite cycle of surveillance.

Untouchable
Performance  (La Romana- Santo Domingo- New York), April to May 2012.

Untouchable is a durational performance that avoids physical contact with human beings over a period of two months. I had to draw a circle around me to an arms distance as a border and visual reference in order to define what I determine to be (arbitrarily) my personal space.
Every country is a territory staked out by clearly defined boundaries. A territory is also an area or space around a person that he claims as his own as if it was an extension of his body.
