Sensorium is a happening that invites immersion into the “Insula” or the brain section that creates the connections between the senses and the affections. This atmospheric experience is made up of five moments of dialogue between the body and art and explores the capacities of existence of concepts that are articulated primarily through the sense of taste, touch and smell.
Visitors pass through a series of “islands of feeling” that make up the biological and emotional interior of an organism.

Escrito en Hielo: Memorias Comestibles del Barrio de San Juan



Written in Ice: Edible Memories of the San Juan neighborhood has been a six-month-long collective exercise where memories and identities have been transformed into six symbolic edible objects: flavors of ice cream. Beyond determining a specific essence of San Juan, this project has embodied different aspects of the neighborhood, emphasizing the multiplicity of ways of doing and being found within a shared territory. This project contains all kinds of flavors, from the bittersweet of leading and organizing the neighborhood as a woman, to the warm and acid feelings of entrepreneurship in times of pandemic. Some aromas are spicy and introduce us to the spiritual and paranormal world of the neighborhood, while others are sweet and pleasant reflections on living the friendship between neighbors, supporting and uplifting each other. The ice creams were distributed through an ice cream cart that ran through the streets running
as a device for the exchange of subjectivities and affections between the museum and the neighborhood. Flavor was a production and interpretation tool for memory and collective history. The piece “Written on Ice” exists through the experiences of Dinna Fanny Barcia Quiñónez, Dr. Olga Serrano, Marianita Fueltala, Raúl Ortíz and the San Juan Volleyball League, Marco Castillo and Teresita Quevedo.

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 mazapán, a traditional ecuadorian craft

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

concept of craft” as “technology“ and welcomes the marks of our

hands as gestures that shape their future.

 

La (des)integración de la fé

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.
