performance, 2020

For my friend, Zaid

For my friend, Zaid (2020) is a performance in relation to the artwork yellow rey (2018) by artist Zaid Al-lozi. Al-lozi gifted Melanie Maria her this piece of art and she guarded this work at her home for several years.

“For Zaid. Beauty in Holland is not the same as beauty in Jordan. Not with humans, nor with surroundings. You gifted me this work back in 2018. I gift you this performance in 2020. Hereby I honor the work and our friendship.”

The performance was only performed once in relation to moving houses. Fashion design was done by GARCIABELLO and the documentation by Candelo Santiago.
