Mariela Hosomaki: Instruments for performance

Mariela Hosomaki

Mariela Hosomaki was a live one-to-one gastronomic performance at the Hatch Nights 1-2-1 event at Primary in Nottingham. Part of the ongoing practice-led research in participatory performance in hybrid space, the artist performed as digital avatar Mariela in a wearable sculpture holding over 100 pieces of rolled hosomaki sushi. During the durational performance audiences could interact using one of the instruments for performance, choosing to feed or to eat. This work questioned the roles, relationships and responsibilities present in participatory performance.
