LA FULMINANTE, a name that can be translated as “the Lighniting,” is a character based on social stereotypes of the sexually provocative Latina, taken from the erotic fantasies built by the Mass Media, reggaeton and pornography. She uses her body as a tool to disseminate ideas, and as an element of attraction to make visible what is not usually available through the conventional channels of communication. As though possessed, she speaks its own language, which is subtitled in Spanish, English, Portuguese and French. The work touches on topics related to globalization, the struggle against imperialism and against the model of power relations imposed by the ingrained machismo in Latin America. There is a new video every fifteen says, with thirty videos posted to date.
