No One is Looking at You seeks to understand the relation between three active elements that constitute performance art: space, audience and performer. Through this work I explore the effects of altering those elements and put them into question. I challenge the position of the audience towards the performer, and the performer and audience in relation to architecture. By building a metal structure of 2m2 I was able to place the body of the performer on top of the audience’s head. The latter was forced to enter and thus to engage with the structure in order to experience the performance. In this performance the spectator is an active element who performs the actions dictated by the structure, which allows the audience to move, to perform and to understand the work.
