Holy Food is an installation of multiple elements that reflects on the transfer of cultures from one place on the planet to another. The work refers to Afro-Caribbean culture and focuses especially on the cultural legacy of African slaves that formed some of the popular subcultures in America today. It consists of food offered to the Orisha deities, gods of the Yoruba region in Africa that exemplify transcultural survival after their arrival in America. Originating from the Gulf of Benin on the coast of West Africa, Yoruba culture has kept its beliefs over the several generations that came to Cuba, Brazil, Haiti, Puerto Rico, Central America and the United States, through assimilation with Catholic saints.

It could be my bedroom (or something similar to it). Even the same technical characteristics: all the walls and volumes constructed in this module of raw canvas for painters to measure me and measure ourselves.
