Santa Inés Ahuatempan

Puebla, México

 

 

 

This artistic action took place in the Ngiba community of Santa Inés Ahuatempan (Puebla, Mexico). The artist also resorts to the appropriation of domestic objects as a "tortillero", in which the logo of Mc Donald s was engraved to counter-relief, with which he performed a performance of real interaction in the Ngiba community (where the tortillero was obtained).

 

During the action several kilos of tortillas were made in a traditional way by stamping the logo of this fast food transnational. The piece was exhibited at the Museo Erasto Cortés, along with the record of the action.
