Visual Poems by Nina Dotti
“Take the Load Off / El Despojo” by Nina Dotti is composed of a striking video-performance “El Despojo” bearing along with distinct visual-poetry “Corazon / Heart”, small format installations and photographs.
“Take the Load Off / El Despojo” turned out to become a rousing performance in which Dotti invited 100 women to pen upon a paper all the things that prevented them from evolving in their life. Once the participating women wrote down the litany of problems hindering their self-actualization, their written laments were thrown into a massive cauldron where the flames of regret were forged into communal wishes for a more positive future.
The work was conducted at the 13 1/2 km mark of the La Guardia Highway in Santa Cruz, Bolivia (2015).
In addition to the video-performance “Take the Load Off / El Despojo”, the artist, whose real name is Nina Fuentes submit nine visual-poems, adapted from the book of poems titled “Música de Rocola / Jukebox Music”, written by her friend and compatriot Adriana Bertorelli.
Dotti’s commanding opus is completed with 13 objects and photos linked with the poems and with the problems of the heart and our affections.
