El Intruso is a work performed by french actress Mathilde Invernon.
The work is not a scheduled performance. Its execution takes place in multiple locations, parallel to the exhibition or event where the work is on display. It occurs as possible encounters where the performer observes, sleeps in public space, smokes in forbidden areas, drinks, cries during public settings, and eventually opens possibilities for random conversations.
El Intruso is an androgynous character designed as the stereotype of a teenager rock music militant. Embroidered symbology, objects, facial makeup, Black Metal paraphernalia, and graphic identities of fictional bands function as syntax of aural activity.
Parallel to the performance a series of actions for camera were produced.
El Intruso was conceived and produced during a residency at La Becque | Résidence d’artistes at La Tour-de-Peilz, Switzerland.
