Guintche – live music version

This piece derives from a person I drew as a memento of a concert. I called it Guintche and meanwhile it grew, acquired self-life, autonomy, rebelled. Guintche is a word in creole, cape-verdean spoken language; It is the name of a bird, the name of a prostitute, but it may stand as well for an attitude, the one of someone who jumps from an event to another, lacking coherence in his/her choices. Trough its counter-intuitive structure, Guintche respond as a wax sculpture: it melts, it solidifies, it brakes, changes form… Yet, it keeps the same nature, that is to say, it remains the same wax.
