Video performance 8:31 min HD video with Eng subtitles
Unlike Germany, Central America mainly uses corn flour as the basis for food consumption. Living in Germany, I have come to realize how easily a seemingly neutral material like flour can be connected to the action of being exoticized. As part of an exploration process between body and matter, I am making a video performance in which I knead a giant corn dough with my whole body. The action is accompanied by a text that describes my relationship to distance and nostalgia.
