"La Espera" is an ongoing project by the artist Citlali Hernández that works around the perception of time while performing the action of waiting. Every day since April the 1st she explores and share this action by a public livestream during 10 minutes. People can join, observe, type something through the facebook chat, and wait. The project will last the same time as quarantine in Barcelona City.
How do you feel when waiting? Do you expect something from yourself? What are others doing? Are you expected to do something? Are you wasting your time? What's the funcionality of waiting? Do you need other people while you wait? How long did this minute last?
Part of this projects makes reference to Faith Wilding's performance "Waiting" in 1973, where the artist exposed the progression of social expectations of a woman during her life. A body that was born to fulfill.
