This piece was presented as part of a group exhibition entitled “Trans Sexual Express”, inside an art space that shares its location with the Catholic church of Santa Monica, situated in a part of town renowned for its busy sex trade. Ropes were tied from one of the pillars inside the building and connected to a wooden block situated on the upper floor. A window had to be broken in order to let the ropes go through into the level above.
Two women took turns during a week, for three hours each day, to remain tied down from their ankles to a wooden block. They were paid 5,000 pesetas an hour, some $24, the equivalent to the fixed price for sexual services in the streets of this zone. The room where they worked remained closed, without anyone seeing the women enter or leave. One of them, aware of the possible commercial workings of the piece, requested, as a condition for doing the job, 10% of the profits the artist might receive.
