"Easter Huevos" Jesus Benavente + + + + +
Co-Lab Project Space
Happy memories always have a way of entangling themselves with the memories we wish to forget. Jesus Benavente’s “Easter Huevos” is an attempt to remove negative memories and replace them with childlike happy memories. However, these childlike memories are recreated with the distortion of adulthood and performance art.
Jesus Benavente and his team of Bunny Buddies, in a series of videos, attempt to remove the memories to various degrees of success. These videos cumulate to the biggest attempt at memory replacement (via a large-scale live interactive performance). This performance will allow people to hunt for Easter eggs in the Co-Lab field and exchange them for the physical remains of memories in the Co-Lab space. A gift that people can take home to create new memories while freeing others of its heavy burden.
