JUMPING THE FENCES
DECEMBER 2006 -DECEMBER 2007
PAPO COLO

JUMPING THE FENCES.
A PERFORMANCE PROJECT.
THE ACTION OF JUMPING 51 FENCES IN DIFFERENT LOCATIONS AROUND THE CITY,
AND AROUND THE WORLD.
THE ARTIST WILL WEAR A MASK LIKE DISGUISE TO REMAIN ANONYMOUS.

FENCES PROTECT AND ISOLATE. THEY ARE A DEMARCATION OF AN AREA,
A SYMBOL OF POSSESSION, A 'KEEP OFF' SIGN AND A COMMAND TO STAY WITHIN AN AREA.

THEY ARE A DIVIDER AND UNIFIER, PROVIDE SECURITY AND FEAR.
THEIR DUALITY IS OUR HISTORY. FENCES AND BORDERS ARE REASONS FOR WAR.

THEY ARE REPRESENTATIONS OF DIFFERENCES, LIMITATIONS FOR COMUNICATION, TERRITORIAL CONTROL, AND A PSYCHOLOGICAL FRIGHT TO PEOPLE, IDEAS AND CULTURES.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS PERFORMANCE IS TO TRANSGRESS THOSE LIMITATIONS, GIVING THE ARTIST A PHYSICAL AND INTELLECTUAL FREEDOM IN THE UNKNOWN; TO DISCOVER WHAT LAY ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE FENCE.

THE DOCUMENTATION OF THIS PIECE WILL INCLUDE A POEM AND PHOTO FOR EACH JUMP OF THE FENCE.

JUMPING THE FENCES IS PHOTOGRAPHY, PERFORMANCE, POETRY AND HISTORY IN A TIME SPACE OF 13 MONTHS.
