ON TOUR » PIECE OF THE HEART - FOR HIM. A NEW FRAGRANCE BY MARIANA TENGNER BARROS
PIECE OF THE HEART is a project that Mariana Tengner Barros wants to develop forever. Its aim is to cyclically recreate (until the end of her short or long career) the concept of the 2008’s original project, which explores diferent dinamics of ‘solo and choir’, multiple relations between singularity and plurality, as well as the vast idea of heart, from its iconographic staging to the representation of passion and love and its vital function- the body’s pump.
In 2012, Mariana Tengner Barros has created PIECE OF THE HEART - FOR HIM, A NEW FRAGRANCE BY MARIANA TENGNER BARROS, a performance that is no longer centered in an autobiographical need and is dedicated exclusively to the presence of male interpreters. These creators are coming from different artistic fields: Cláudio Vieira, a transdisciplinary artist, that works mostly in video art and photography, John Romão, actor and theater director, and Tiago Cadete, performer. The term fragrance appears here as a way to think how affections are commodified, how love is bought and sold, promoted on sale.
To paraphrase the artificiality of scents for men and women sold "for her / him", this piece also focuses on the effectiveness of the sale of desire through sophisticated plastic forms, proposing, among other things, various journeys through the iconography of the heart in advertising spots .
