Carousel is a new performance art installation that the artist Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich recently presented at Faena Arts Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich’s Performance Carousel is a circular, revolving stage divided into nine parts. As it rotates like a horizontal hamster wheel, the carousel unveils various individual performances by nine performance artists. For a whole week (May 20-26, 2014), visitors had the chance to see this collaborative work, which included the artists Chuyia Chia (Malaysia), Eloise Fornieles (UK), Belen Romero Gunset (Argentina), Andrés Knob (Argentina), Bhagavan-David Barki de Lima (Brazil), Lolo y Lauti (Argentina), Fyodor Pavlov-Andreevich (Russia/Brazil), Eduardo Alcón Quintanilha (Argentina), and Joshua Seidner (US). The exhibition was being curated by Marcello Pisu and with architectural work designed by Atelier Marko Brajovic (São Paulo)
