TRYPTYCH is Manel`s first attempt with video and performance art. In it a man’s hand and a woman’s foot can be seen being licked and sucked by the artist, whose mouth appears at the centre of the piece in the process of uttering some sort of self confession or litany followed by soulful singing. The entire piece lasts approximately 20 minutes.
In his PAPER SUITS made from the personals section of the Loot newspaper the artist tries to convey a feeling of isolation and frustration due to the difficulty of making sexual relationships with other men. The choice of paper tries to reflect among other things the fragility He was experience at the time with his own body. Those suits have been worn by the artist as performance pieces and the culmination of this work can be seen in the video section where the artist stands under the rain and waits to be disrobed by the disintegration of the suit when it comes in contact with the water.
