Collective exhibition “Comida es Medicina/Food is Medicine”
Galería de la Raza in San Francisco, CA, US.
The āmoxtli (book) or codex reveals how the religious, social, and economical life was in the Mexican cultures, including the feeding of the population, recipes, ingredients, and how to cua (comer/eat). Made with a cardboard box to import organics fruits or vegetables from Mexico to Canada, trough an US company, the āmoxtli inquires the politics of organic food, who is producing it, and who is consuming it. The artwork aims to represent the importance to understand how to eat, consume, and fight for a better food quality in Latin America, and abroad. The āmoxtli invites to interpret how to read, and make conscience on our food consumption; food is medicine, knowledge, revolution, resistance, and decolonial though.
