TORERO / TORPEDO (8 DE MAYO 2004, S.M.A.K. GANTE)
The first time that Emilio López-Menchero performed Torero / Torpedo is on May 8th 2004 at 5pm in Ghent. The occasion was the opening of the exhibition which celebrated the 5th anniversary of S.M.A.K.
López-Menchero is a torero, stoically walking through the S.M.A.K with his bull-bike geared with a tape player playing loudly scores of classical paso-dobles. The camera traces the artist outside the art centre and while, uninvited, he goes into the museum and takes a good look at the artworks in the exhibition that present a prominent red element or horn shape.
Afterwards he rides out of the building through the front doors, disappearing in the direction of the bicycle race.
