What imagination is possible for a life that flourishes between the gaps? How does food dignify and strengthen mind and body to face the path walked so far?


There is a thread that connects past and present, building the future incessantly. Our ancestry leans on this thread through memory, imagination and corporeality.

The hand that gets ready to make specific incisions (ticar) in the fish and feeds with its head is the same one that cracks the occidental episteme with knowledge from nature, which sustains its existence.

Likewise, body, experimentation and art are gifts of existences that carry out power, stories and secrets. Magic is in the hands of those who swing within their limitations of what could be this body in a world called “modern”.

Bananas are mashed as if it was known that post-identity is the acceptation of possibilities of the whole. Rewriting trajectories outside the linguistic and bodily limits of our time, subverting utilitarian functions. We will sustain tomorrow by demolding time with our hands as well.

The now is a calling, as it is necessary to comprehend the power of life between cracks, the explosion of creativity inside the chest so that the ‘scoundrel hideout turns into pleasure’.

To face this body-rupture is denaturalize its non-presence. To turn to the table, on the other hand, is to detach abundance in a toast to meeting.

This work is a wish to reverberate life. To offer our time seeds to those who came before us and are still to come. To naturalize experiences and existences with full plates in the labyrinths we built.
