Terra Bomba: A Performance View of Installation investigated the theatricality of installation art and the reality of performance art as installation. Performance artists used the gallery as a stage and created areas of acting which constituted a dynamic exhibition of installations with the purpose of performance. The public was encouraged to interact with the performers and their stage settings.
Each of the participating artists was asked to create a stage setting for their performance work and to create a new performance for the project. Their stage settings functioned as installation art works in which every Saturday the performance presentations took place.
These performance events were free and open to the public. Audience could come and wander through environment, determining which performances they chose to watch. Audiences were encouraged to attend more than once to fully appreciate the extent of the show.
