Processionism is an encounter between the two artists Marcelo Simoes (visual artist) and Marcos Mardones (performing artist).
The Desire is here the starting point for movement.
Not always forward, but assuming it’s multiple, diverse and contradictory directions.
Desire (as an object) is not only the object but a landscape that surrounds it.
Processionism is the landscape to attain the object.
The landscape are bodies that talks, sings, dances
and walks to communicate with the hybrid gods.
The objects of desire are devoted portraits, a video-clip, an erotic movie, a dance-photoshooting performance and a parade monster.
These objects are made as amulets to acumplish our wishes.
An exhibition-performance, where the audience is invited in a procession of Desire.
An ‘orgy’ of Art to attain a desirable liberation of desires. A ceremony.
