a certain idea of paradise 1. this gold we eat (following Guamán Poma de Ayala)
2006, mural drawing, Swiss chocolate, Ecuadorian cacao, variable dimensions
Drawing carried out directly on the wall of the exhibition room of the Attitudes Arts Centre in Geneva, Switzerland (first place where this piece was produced). It is a large-scale drawing taken from the Nueva Crónica y Buen Gobierno by Guamán Poma de Ayala (1615), in which an Inca and a Spanish conquistador are depicted exchanging produce. For ink I used a mixture of Swiss chocolate made with Ecuadorian cocoa.
The drawing would be carried out on two other occasions, in Lyon (2007) and in Shanghai (2008).
