Presenting my project The Impostors at Food Loop, the collective exhibition by LUZ opening next week, on Tuesday 23rd at Boutek, Milan.
Four well-known dishes with strong historical meanings rooted in the past, are observed from a contemporary perspective that aims to capture the transition they went through to be what they are today. The installations, then photographed, aim to spark doubts on food culture and food exploitation, focusing the gaze on two different paths a recipe can take.
The first, from traditional dish to fast food and the second, from street food to a strategically elevated gourmet experience, in both cases desecrating the original value.
