Unlike predators, with their pointed pupils, prey have rectangular pupils that allow them a panoramic vision. This is the case of sheep, animals whose collective organization and panoramic vision are their defensive characteristics in the face of a possible threat.

During the performance Rapport, I spend a night sleeping in a sheep pen. Rapport is an act that aims to rethink the sheep-human relationship through a change of posture. Can a horizontal posture in disposition to rest contribute to rethink the verticality of the human in front of other species?

Seeking to fall asleep in the presence of a group of sheep is also an attempt to synchronize myself with ecological times and rhythms; an act of trust and surrender.

 

Thanks to Christian Salablanca and the sheep of Pueblo Garzón.
