THE PERFORBOX

Performance. 

Minimum Duration 8 continuous hours.

2004-2014

From a menu composed by more of 200 performances art pieces, which were loan from other artists and performers friends, each viewer can select one to be completed immediately by Monroy accordingly to the description and specifications made by the owner or author of each work. To select one of the performance the spectators must take a number out of a turn dispenser and when called by the artist could choose the performance of his/her preference out from a menu projected on one of the walls of the place where actions are performed.

 

All work on the menu has the authorization of each of its creators for use and presentation. Monroy try to be as faithful and strict as he can with the instructions and requests that each of the authors asked to be made during the action. Before starting any piece Monroy gives the proper credits out loud and publicly explain to the audience the conditions and situations in which the piece was ceded to him. The duration of the Performola depends on how much time the performer has to do it, being 8 continuous hours the minimum requirement to present the piece. According to the time the artist makes performative marathons executing actions request by the viewers, stopping only after the minimum o 8 hours or until any of the performance with a "warning sing" is made. This because there are some pieces that prevent the performer to continue after completion. 

The last time the Perforbox was done lasted 5 days of 5 continuous hours each, making a total of 25 hours of performance in which Monroy made more than 70 different actions.
