H.I. is an interactive performance: it starts from a concept proposed by the artist and it develops in the form of a dialogue and crowd-interaction. The whole process is recorded and every evening fragments of the work are shared on public wall surfaces within the neighbourhood, opening up the creation process to others artists, as well to the general public and passengers passerbys. This heterogenic audience will be asked to leave “messages” for the artist in the form of commentaries, tweets, text messages, songs, objects… The inhabitants of downtown Port au Prince will have the chance to engage in a dialogue and to mould the image of the artist/woman throughout her research process. The rope is the symbolic object used by the artist to delineate her space, to build up different images and meanings: from the hanging clothes and the house setting, till the relational bounds, violence and coercion.
