Coin Operated comes as a performance installation directed to unconventional spaces, where the dialogue with the public is direct and the continuity of the performance depends on the dynamics of that same dialogue. The mutation between installation and performance occurs through an audience that is invited to introduce €1 coins into the slot of two horses where Jonas and Lander are sitting in asphyxiating immobility. From that moment, when the connection between horse and coin takes place, the installation ends to give way to performance. With this work, Jonas & Lander intend a new approach to the spectator, in which it starts to take an active role in the consequence and dynamics of the action, celebrating an unexpected dialogue with each presentation.

Duration: 45 minutes
