Starting today, I, Carlos Salazar Lermont, Venezuelan artist, curator, producer and teacher, commit to adjust to a severe austerity regime, based on avoiding any kind of vain expense in daily life. Any exception will be documented and justified. This spent cut aims to save for reaching higher goals, more meaningful for personal fulfilling.
The performance seeks to reflect on the effectiveness of austerity regimes to which undeveloped countries are forced to fit their economies. The personal scale acts as a analogy of the macro economic systems that significantly affect our lives as citizens. Its failure or success hopes to aid the politic stand of individuals on that matter.
