"A fierce hunger echoes when you sow dreams and flowers" is inspired by the interaction of word and matter in artistic production. Flour is introduced in the project as a common temporal and geographical landscape of humanity. The imagery and wordplay elicited by the phrase stimulate the poetics of the landscape. When the observer is challenged to reflect on the content and the relationships that the material, context, and sentence propose today, the sentence explores proximity. Combining an understanding of one of the foundations of food sources, it proposes the valorization of cereals, as well as the need to consider food scarcity when access is difficult.
The project is distinguished by the simplicity of the elements and the poetics conveyed by the material and textual content. The arrangement of the material allows the piece to be read. Its inherent fragility stems from the unstable balance of the act of creation itself (flour placed on the floor without the use of any type of binder), the tension between the material placed on the ground, which can be destroyed by the wind, and the power of the written word, which is not written in stone. Starting with flour, the piece focuses on this local ingredient that is installed and presented.
The piece promotes an imaginary landscape of one of humanity's food sources and speculates on its eventual extinction. Flour is derived from a cereal that has long been used in human food. It generates vital energy for humans due to its composition. Its color varies according to the shades of cereal used to make it. The flour introduces the time's action to the proposal because it is the only material that acts in the sentence's construction. Despite its widespread use, flour has flaws that can disrupt the balance of humanity's diet.
Climate change, armed conflict, and pests, among other factors, all have an impact on cereal production. The project aims to condense the tension and pay homage to the fragility of food by using a common and seemingly insignificant ingredient. When the word and the velvety nuances of the material are placed directly on the floor or on a support, they create a landscape in which to read, experiment, and reflect.
