Ernesto Pujol is a site-specific performance artist and social choreographer. His public performances create cultural portraits of peoples and places as ephemeral monuments, revealing the silent invisible by revisiting the deeply familiar, as collective psychic portraits, in the Jungian sense. His durational performances are constructed through repeated walking, generating space-within-spaces, aided by elements of silence and solitude. Horizontality becomes verticality; plain become wells. Pujol believes that the sustainability of the American experiment, as we become an increasingly impoverished diverse society, requires such recurrent ephemeral spaces for reflection. The artist serves as a performance instructor in the MFA programs of Parsons, The New School, and the School of Visual Arts.
