Clay pot feast is a journey through the popular ceramic cookware that the artist links to a performative practice. A proposal intended to generate sublimating experiences that are permeable with real life. A relational derive justified on the necessity of approaching people while building situations that allow us to go back over a community that has been thrown into disarray a long time ago.
In a context of hybridization, understood as a mixture and contamination of specific cultural practices homogenized in very similar traditions around the world; crafts, due to its ontological singularity and uniqueness, devises anew as a motor of the positive discrimination towards certain cultural patterns to turn them into identity traces.
In a first phase, the artist produces ceramic objects originating from different regions of the planet as its traditional and archetypical form. After, she inserts them into our context –dominated by a particular reality-, through its use, as cooking the dishes they were originally made for and share them in community. The action becomes as an attempt to cook and eat for the first time a foreign dish, culturally distant, with an unfamiliar flavour for all those present.
Beyond the pleasure of tasting, the delight of the very process of cooking and sharing, the artist brings back the culinary traditions that involve a ritual. In the same way as the objects mediate in our relationship with food, these also come from a culture and a time. Here, the act of eating has cognitive dimensions of deeply -social and symbolic- rooting that activates processes of creation, and its different variables intensify or attenuate the aesthetical experience.
