Tastes Like Home

Tastes Like Home

Sculpture (flour, salt, polen, hibiscus, achiote, lapis lazuli)

TIER: Institute of Endotic Research.

Berlin 2020

These sculptures were built for the Taste Like Home exhibition,

where four flavors of candy, explored the meaning and taste of

home in four different geographies.The sculptures that contained

the candy were built completely of edible ingredients such as flour,

salt, polen, achiote, and hibiscus. They distributed the candies around

space and built relationships between them. The sculptures were

made using the technique of mazapรกn, a traditional ecuadorian craft

made in the day of the dead. The use of mazapรกn explores the

concept of craftโ€ as โ€œtechnologyโ€œ and welcomes the marks of our

hands as gestures that shape their future.

 

La (des)integraciรณn de la fรฉ

This work is an edible crucifix intended to “raise our faith” and explore

the relationship between religion and the drug industry in Latin America

as containers of similar types of symbolism. This piece investigates

the concept of “devotion”, and the interiorization of a sacrifice, which

is perpetually reproducing itself as a promise but also as a visible

expression of violence.

Excerpt of Curatorial Text:
La Iglesia del Reggaeton aims to exorcise stiffness while establishing itself as a living monument for the Latinx community in Berlin. This Iglesia takes the Latin American evangelical right-wing churches as a point of departure and is now looking for new adepts in Germany. To do so, various artists from different parts of Latin America are planning conspiratorial collaborations, promising to remove rules from Germany as well as from all sorts of bodies inhabiting Berlin.
