Ingredients: Flour, yeast, water and salt.

Performance, Sacred / Mythological, 2008
It’s an intense, sensitive and empathic action during which a daily task, as bread making, is brought to the extreme, and each part of the body, each pore of the skin, makes contact with the flour. This daily gesture is transformed into a poetic act full of symbolism and sensations, and is transformed into a public gesture. The action requires direct contact with the audience since it becomes part of the action.
Creation, birth, maternity, sacrifice, bread with its profane and sacred symbolism, symbol of spirituality, passion, and fertility at the same time.

The bread, product of performance, cooked and ready to eat, is brought back into the urban context of the city as a sculpture, as a piece resulting of the performative action. The bread makes contrast with the public space, since it’s usually associated with private space. The public bread is the bread of wartime, when it’s rationed due to scarcity and poverty.
