Material: oranges, rice, pizza, noodles.
Made in is a mark engraved on the skin, the blood, the memory and the taste buds.
Made in is a tattoo that continues beyond the body, that permeates the earth, contaminates it and stitches its borders, and then crosses them.
Made in is a personal story fabricated by a group.
Made in is a necessity born from the identity of the group formed for the video performance.
A multicultural group: one Spanish, one Italian and two Chinese, all migrant women in their own cities, in other nations and continents.
Migrants of precariousness.
Externalising emotions linked to identity memories, demystifying clichés and stereotypes by making them emblematic and then profaning them.
Made in is an ode to personal fabrication, to the awareness of the complexity that makes each person what he or she is.
Made in is a memory of lability and of our roots, which become fluid, composed and structured thanks to real and mental journeys, thanks to the people we meet and fall in love with.
Made in is an invocation of a common factor that unites us as people: food.
Food for the flesh, for dreams, for ideas.
On our tongues the flavours of the ages reverberate, in our stomachs our guts remind us of who we are.
Food for the mind, for the eyes and for the body that walks within the walls of the kitchen.
A soul enslaved to the cooker, hypnotised by the magic of fire, entrenched between plates and pots to cook, defend and strike.
Made in manufactures a voluptuous and carnivorous imagination.
