BLAHM! BLAHTTITUDES ( Bam! Attitudes )
eVe ARIZA> Let´s blahm the blah! ( Let’s bam the blah )
Blahm! to BLAH with BLAH ( Bam! to blah with blah )
BLAH TREATS THE (IM)-POSSIBILITIES OF DIALOGUE CARACTERISTIC TO THE HUMAN BEING.
I wrote this blahphony ( symphony ) for the project “SOMEWHERE AND NOW” ( AILLEURS ET MAINTENANT – Consommé d´artistes ) around the concept blah, using experimental sessions of punching-blah and online direct conexions with blahrtners ( partners ).
All of this with the idea to establish a participatory relationship in images and to collect speeches that will be gived back posteriorly
All the project is articulated around a pink punching-bag ( punching-blah) that embody the concept BLAH, relative to the blah blah blah.
Some of this interventions are realized on invitation by people who doesn’t practise this combat sport, some other people are professionals fighters. Other casual persons are involved in the project when the punching-blah is installed in the urban space.
All of them are invited to practise the punching-blah as they feel it.
This interventions are some of them recorded, others are captured spontaneously and send back on live, but all of them are send to a website, famous for encounter and exchange, I will call it for the moment “BLAHROULETTE”
Let´s see if we are good BLAHrtners (partners) or not and if the experience Blahm! Blahttitudes open up a dialogue.

” Eve Ariza engages in caustic and committed interference by turning the wind flow communication that overwhelms us, as a work support. The “blah” * pushed into their trenches, are left to be devoured, crushed, abused and paradoxically loved. A website show the different experiences with what she calls the “punching-blah ” a pink punching-bag stamped with the word”blah” in white. The object is located in the exhibition hall as a call to reaction for visitors. Performance is thus multiplied in space and in time.” K; DEPAULIS.
