Textile Sculptures 2021 Series: "Where there is no food, there is no life"

Under visual sovereignty, we can also generate images of what it means to self-represent other bodies, humanizing them into objects, to construct them more imaginatively from our own cultural, everyday, and domestic cosmogony. I allow myself to use the visual as a way to explain a non-verbalized event.
Women sustain the pandemic with domestic labor, unpaid labor maximized to grueling and endless hours of work in the pandemic COVID-19. We mothers and non-mothers care for and feed our families in the kitchen, a space typically associated with the feminine. The subject-object relationship goes beyond functional use, utensils are cared for and protected from a maternal position, as an extension of our own position, with which we feed ourselves, they become an important part of the family.
I highlight this event in everyday life in the same way as when I intervene in a photograph with embroidery. I detach it from its surroundings, wrapping it in fibers and adding surreal elements that show, in this case, the value of the food, who prepares it, and how they relate to each other. Women sustain the pandemic, because where there is no food, there is no life.
