Summary: According to Giorgio Agamben, certain artistic expressions during Modernity are characterized by the artist's knotting to his work and to the operation he sets in motion. In this way, any productive or reproductive sense is retracted in terms of emancipation. On the basis of these aesthetic concepts, the following are some reflections on the process of research and creation carried out within the framework of the project "Performative writings: body and action in ephemerodramas" during "Relation I.". In Black. Trayecto Finlandia", as an experience situated in the installation by the artist Mónica Ostchega carried out at the Genaro Pérez Museum between May and June 2017. The work carried out articulating the method of Repetitive Minimalist Systems (SMR) elaborated by José Sanchis Sinisterra, action art and performative writing allows us to reformulate the agambenian approach and propose that when the arctic machine stops, the link with life is re-established.
