Andres Bedoya   “Ultra Madre”   [Video]

In 2009 Andres Bedoya organized a haunting performance installation “Ultra Madre,” in which 57 women lay still on the scaffolding of the main arch of the Museo Nacional de Arte in La Paz, Bolivia. For one hour the women did not move, their long, black hair cascading down the 15-foot structure. The jarring image of the soft hair against the rigid architecture stirred a quiet but lasting sense of unease.

Installation and Performance - mixed media, approx. 8’ w x 15’ h x 5’ d, National Museum of Art, La Paz, Bolivia, 2009.
